Thunderball centenary edition novel
Thunderball (1961) is the ninth of Ian Fleming's James Bond books.

Blofeld – leader of the terror organization SPECTRE – is holding the world to ransom. He has stolen two powerful atomic weapons and will destroy a major city if his demands for £100,000,000 are not met. Given one week to find the missing bombs, Bond goes to the Bahamas, where he encounters sultry Domino – mistress of Blofeld’s right hand man, Emilio Largo. By getting closer to her, 007 hopes to find out more about Largo’s hidden operation among the coral reefs, but soon finds himself getting deep into shark infested waters...

In Thunderball, Fleming created a tale of breathless excitement amid the stunning scenery of the Bahamas, and in the chilling, puritanical killer Blofeld, he introduced Bond’s arch nemesis.
