A new paperback edition of SeaFire (1994), John Gardner's 14th James Bond novel, is published for the US market. On the same day, Gardner's 13th and 16th Bond novels (Never Send Flowers and Cold) is published.

With the help of his new girlfriend, Flicka von Grüsse, James Bond goes after billionaire Sir Maxwell Tarn (who thinks he's the next Hitler) in the 007 spy thriller SeaFire.

A new Double-0 section has risen from the ashes of the old British Secret Service. Now, the Secret Service has been split up and the Double-0 section reports to a small government committee called MicroGlobe One. Gone are the days when James Bond was answerable only to M. Gone also is the old license to kill, gone is the automatic pistol; for the new section’s targets are not individuals but large corporations.

But weapons are reinstated when Bond is put on the trail of the self-made billionaire Sir Maxwell Tarn, whose business empire spans the globe, and whose activities appear to include illegal dealing in weapons on a grand global scale.

With the shrewd assistance of Flicka von Grusse, 007 follows a maze of trails from London to Spain, Israel and Germany. But they are on board Tarn’s floating laboratory off the coast of Puerto Rico when their own prey becomes their captor. There, Bond and Flicka realize their misstep has placed them squarely in the audience to a deadly experiment that will trigger ecological disaster of global proportions.

The fate of the oceans, not to mention their own lives, lies in stopping Tarn before his cache of deadly weapons destroys much more than a few pristine islands in the Caribbean.
