Description: It's 1957 and James Bond, agent 007, has only just survived his showdown with Auric Goldfinger at Fort Knox. By his side is Pussy Galore, who was with him at the end.

Unknown to either of them, the USSR and the West are in a deadly struggle for technological superiority in the Space Race. And SMERSH is back.

The Soviet counter-intelligence agency plans to sabotage a Grand Prix race at the most dangerous track in Europe. But it's Bond who finds himself in the driving seat and events take an unexpected turn when he observes a suspicious meeting between SMERSH's driver and a sinister Korean millionaire, Sin Jai-Seong.

Soon Bond is pitched into an entirely different race with implications that could change the world. Thrown together with American agent Jeopardy Lane, Bond uncovers a plan that will bring the West to its knees in a heart-stopping climax.
