Win, Lose, Or Die

The London Gazette announcement was brief: 'BOND, JAMES, Commander RNVR, Relieved of current liasion duties at the Foreign Office. Promoted to the substantive rank of Captain and returned to active service forthwith.'

The return of James Bond to the Royal Navy marks the intriguing backdrop to John Gardner's thrilling new adventure featuring Ian Fleming's celebrated hero.

Bond takes a refresher course and keeps up his flying hours by doing a conversion course on Sea Harriers. And eventually he learns that his mission is to serve in the Royal Navy's major aircraft carrier, HMS Invincible as minder to a phalanx of top brass British, American and - in this era of glasnost - Russian admirals, who are on board for a NATO exercise.

But why? Can a thrilling hi-jack by airborne troops (using hang-gliders) on a Japanese tanker, some time before, be connected?
