You Only Live Twice

First edition UK hardcover (1964)
The first Swedish edition (1964)
When Ernst Stavro Blofeld blasted into eternity the girl whom James Bond had married only hours before, the heart, the zest for life, went out of Bond. Incredibly from being a top agent of the Secret Service, he had gone to pieces, was even on the verge of becoming a security risk. M is persuaded to give him one last chance - an impossible mission far removed from his usual duties - and Bond leaves for Japan.

There, coming under the orders of the formidable 'Tiger' Tanaka, Head of the Japanese Secret Service, the Koan-Chosa-Kyoku, he is indeed subjected to the shock treatment his condition demanded.

Shock treatment? The reader will also be subjected to it in full measure in this, perhaps the most bizarre and doom-fraught of all James Bond's adventures.
