S.P.E.C.T.R.E. hatches its most audacious plot to date when its agents hijack a British Vulcan bomber armed with two atomic bombs and hold N.A.T.O. ransom for the sum of one hundred million dollars. The British send all their "00" Agents, including James Bond, to recover the warheads before S.P.E.C.T.R.E. carries out its threat to detonate the devices on the U.K. and U.S. mainlands. - Dave Jenkins

In a bold and deadly scheme, the evil S.P.E.C.T.R.E. organization hijacks a N.A.T.O. plane and seizes two atomic warheads, each capable of killing millions of innocent people. As the world is held hostage by the threat of a nuclear nightmare, Bond jumps into action, racing against the clock as the trail leads him to tropical Nassau, The Bahamas. There he meets Emilio Largo, a high-ranking Agent of S.P.E.C.T.R.E., and the stunning Domino, with whom he shares an irresistible attraction. The confrontation builds to an epic battle on the ocean floor, as Bond and his allies fight to avert a catastrophe of immense proportions. - Robert Lynch

When a British Vulcan bomber is stolen with two atomic bombs on board, James Bond is one step ahead of his fellow agents when they are assigned to track down the aircraft. S.P.E.C.T.R.E. then announce that they have the plane and will detonate the bombs unless one hundred million dollars worth of uncut diamonds are delivered. He tracks the plane down to the Bahamas but still has to deal with the deadly Emilio Largo. - Graeme Roy

When two colleagues of James Bond are murdered, James follows the widow of a double agent who has been killed, and a confrontation ensues. The double agent is part of S.P.E.C.T.R.E., and the organization's meeting in a secret lair in Paris regrets the agent's death as it deals with new criminal business. Emilio Largo, a ruthless and flamboyant one-eyed enforcer, has hatched a scheme against the North Atlantic Treaty powers that begins at a rehabilitation clinic near a Royal Air Force airbase. Scheduled to pilot an R.A.F. Vulcan strategic bomber on a normal "fail-safe" flight is Francois Derval, who is having a passionate affair with the magnificently endowed beauty Fiona Volpe, an affair that S.P.E.C.T.R.E. exploits. Soon, the Vulcan and its warload of two nuclear bombs has been hijacked, the bombs seized by Largo, for use in S.P.E.C.T.R.E.'s most audacious extortion scheme yet. James Bond, however, finds a key clue in the sister of Francois Derval, Dominique "Domino" Derval, a beautiful young woman who is a passionate scuba diver living in Nassau, The Bahamas. When James investigates Domino, he comes into contact with a S.P.E.C.T.R.E. operation on the island, and he gets help from H.M.S.S.' man in Nassau, Pinder, and an old C.I.A. chum, Felix Leiter. But when James and Felix find out what S.P.E.C.T.R.E. is up to, it may be too late to save a major U.S. coastal city from nuclear annihilation. - Michael Daly (
