First published in 1968, four years after Ian Fleming's death, this was the first Bond 'continuation' novel, penned by one of Britain's finest novelists, Kingsley Amis. 'A man in my line of business shouldn't work to a timetable'.
Lunch at Scott's, a quiet game of golf, a routine social call on his chief M - James Bond's life has begun to fall into a pattern that threatens complacency...until the sunny afternoon when M is kidnapped and his house staff savagely murdered.
The action ricochets across the globe to a volcanic Greek island where, stripped of all professional aids, Bond must avert a world-menacing conspiracy and face unarmed the monstrous devices of the glacial, merciless Colonel Sun.
