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.
