Double Play: The Story of an Amazing World Record
Frank Martinus Arion
|M hasn't forgiven James Bond for the negligence on his last assignment that nearly cost Bond his life. Brusquely, almost contemptuously, he tosses Bond a time-wasting, shabby little case in the Caribbean. It will really be a holiday on an island in the sun – convalescence.
Angrily Bond accepts his orders. He flies off to Jamaica. The sun shines,
| the palm trees wave, the calypsos throb.
But on the horizon a cloud forms. It is no bigger than a man's hand – an articulated steel hand – the hand of Dr. No!
This, the sixth of Ian Fleming's Secret Service thrillers, will, as did the others, grip the reader with a taut, suave, sensual stranglehold. (from the original jacket copy, 1958)
|BOOKS BY IAN FLEMING:|
Ace undercover agent James Bond travels to the Caribbean to investigate why a secret service team has mysteriously disappeared.
