For Your Eyes Only

Date published: 1960

Original Summary of the Plot

The destruction of a Russian hideout at SHAPE head quarters near Paris; the planned assassination of a Cuban thug in America; the tracking of a heroin ring from Rome to Venice and beyond; sudden and ghastly death in the Seychelles islands and, in between, a story of love and hate in Bermuda.

These are five episodes in a short span of tough life - the life of James Bond, agent number 007 in the Secret Service.
Plot Summary from the original jacket copy of the Jonathan Cape edition

Current Summary of the Plot

Sudden emergencies and beautiful girls who aren't quite what they seem are the stock-in-trade of James Bond. And when 007 is on the case there's only one thing you can be sure of - the result will be thrilling. Whether he's dealing with the assassination of a Cuban thug in America, the destruction of an international heroin ring, or sudden death in the Seychelles, Bond gets the job done. In his own suave and unmistakable style.
