About For Your Eyes OnlyA departure from the full length James Bond novels published in 1960, For Your Eyes Only is a stunning collection of five stories that sends 007 to Bermuda, Berlin, and also beyond, and places him in the dangerous company of adversaries of all varieties. 'From a View to a Kill' whisks Bond to the French countryside where he must go undercover to expose a deadly secret-intelligence plot, and in this book, 007 is absorbed into a private vendetta of M's blurring the lines between the personal and professional. In 'Quantum of Solace', Bond attends a dinner party in the Bahamas and learns how passion can soon twist into cruelty. While 'Risico' forces the secret agent to fight for the lesser of two evils in a smuggling war set amid the Mediterranean. Finally, 'The Hildebrand Rarity' lands 007 in an old-fashioned murder mystery at sea, where even he has a secret to keep. A collection of both classic intrigue and intrepid self-examination, this book packs full, vibrant worlds into five classic tales.
