First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
The first U.S edition, published the same year as the U.K first edition.

Written by Kingsley Amis under the name Robert Markham.
This is the first James Bond continuation novel published after Ian Fleming's 1964 death. Before this work Amis wrote two other Bond related works. The inspiration of this novel came from a holiday Amis took in the Greek island. This centres on James Bond and his mission to track down the kidnappers of M, his superior at the Secret Service.
Sir Kingsley Amis was a popular English novelist, poet, critic and teacher. He wrote in many genres including comedy, science fiction and mystery.
