Trapped in a deadly game of cross and double cross, Bond must resist the charms of the beautiful Tatiana Romanova and keep his cool against two of SMERSH’s most dangerous assassins in order to save his own life and protect the reputation of the entire British Empire.  Amongst President Kennedy’s favourite books of all time, From Russia with Love was heralded as ‘One of the most outrageously entertaining thrillers ever contrived’ when it was first published.  To find out more about this classic James Bond novel, click here.
