Ian Fleming's JAMES BOND is the world's most famous secret service agent. His adventures have attracted an international coterie of the literate and the sophisticated, a readership that includes prime ministers and presidents, and doubtless kings and queens.
In On Her Majesty s Secret Service James Bond—who works under the code "name" 007 (the double-0 prefix signifies license to kill), who has thwarted such tainted geniuses as Dr. No and Goldfinger—makes a mistake no secret service man should ever make. Impossible as it would seem, Bond, the eminently successful bachelor, loses his heart.
Her name? Countess Teresa di Vicenzo . . . Tracy. Blue-eyed, with a helmet of golden hair, shocking-pink lips, a ravishing body, and a soul in despair—she comes into Bond's life on a sparkling September afternoon. He rescues her from disaster. And before the next day's sun has set she involves him in the one adventure he will never in his life be able to forget.
The adventure pits Bond once more against Ernst Stavro Blofeld, head of the international crime syndicate known as SPECTRE, architect of an atomic blackmail scheme that came perilously close to success in Thunderball, the evil manipulator who now puts the finishing touches to his plot for murder on a mass scale.
As the action races from the musty halls of Britain's College of Arms to the dangerous ski trails of the Swiss Alps, the reader watches Bond become both quarry and pursuer . . . and marvels as Fate, guided by the master hand of Ian Fleming, twists circumstance to bring the secret agent the fullness of victory, the bitter agony of defeat.
