Bond was bored and resentful. Bored with sitting behind a desk, shuffling bits of paper around. Resentful that M seemed to have left him to rot. A threat of resignation and he'd been packed off on holiday.
But it was on holiday on Vancouver Island that life began to look up. Brokenclaw Lee, half-Chinese, half-Crow Indian caught the attention. A huge man who exuded power and ruthlessness.
Then, summoned to San Francisco, Bond had learnt more about the mysterious Mr Lee and his underworld empire. Learnt about the five missing scientists and their ultra-secret work. He'd met his new and beautiful partner Chi-Chi.
Suddenly life was interesting again. And very, very dangerous.
