They call him the winner who takes it all ...

The seventh book in The Folio Society series of Bond novels written by Ian Fleming

MI6 is on full alert. An organisation calling itself SPECTRE has stolen two atomic bombs and is threatening to destroy an unspecified city unless the government pays their ransom of £100 million in gold bullion. Bond is dispatched to the Bahamas on a hunch that initially looks like a frustrating dead end. The beautiful surroundings and the equally alluring Dominetta ‘Domino’ Vitali offer some pleasing distractions, but it soon becomes apparent that something merciless lurks amongst the sharks in the crystal blue waters of Nassau. With time running out, Bond must use every skill at his disposal to foil the plans of this new diabolical enemy – one Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
