You Only Live Twice
James Bond is about to be cashiered out of Her Majesty's Secret Service.
The British agent whose exploits have been followed by millions of readers around the world, who has thwarted such arch-criminals as Dr. No and Goldfinger, now finds himself on a last-chance mission.
Sick with grief over the death of Tracy, his beautiful wife of a day, Bond has bungled two important assignments.
As You Only Live Twice opens, Bond faces an unspoken ultimatum.
He must make good on a vital mission to Japan or his career in the service will be finished....In this latest adventure novel the inimitable Ian Fleming unfolds a spellbinding tale of the Orient-of sensuous pleasure and maniacal torture-of a suicide garden of sulphurous fumaroles and poisonous plants surrounding a pool of man-eating piranha-of a lissome beauty named Kissy Suzuki-and of James Bond's appointment with destiny in a place of easy death.
