Publication of a new paperback edition of Brokenclaw, John Gardner's ninth James Bond novel. The book is published by Orion Books in the UK.

On holiday in Victoria, British Columbia, Bond becomes intrigued Lee Fu-Chu, a half-Blackfoot, half-Chinese philanthropist who is known as "Brokenclaw" because of a deformed hand. On his return to the UK Bond is tasked to investigate the kidnapping of several scientists who have been working on a new submarine detection system. It becomes clear that Brokenclaw is behind the kidnapping and worse, he has a devastating plan to cause economic meltdown through the collapse of the dollar. Bond has no choice but to enter his lair.

John Gardner began his career as a novelist in 1964, with 'The Liquidator', featuring the character Boysie Oakes. In 1981, Gardner was asked to revive Ian Fleming's James Bond series of novels. Gardner wrote fourteen James Bond novels, and the novelizations of two James Bond film adventures, Licence to Kill (1989) and GoldenEye (1995).
