You Only Live Twice Folio Society
The eleventh volume in The Folio Society’s spectacular James Bond series sees the agent fighting not only for his life, but for his very livelihood. The last book to be published before Ian Fleming died, You Only Live Twice (1964) contains everything that makes a Bond novel so thrilling: exotic locations, glamorous women, grotesque villains – while also revealing a little more of what makes the agent tick.

Fay Dalton continues her dazzling work on this series, with seven gorgeous colour illustrations and a show-stopping pictorial slipcase. The elegantly understated binding design nods to both the location of Bond’s latest adventure, and the agent’s love of smart suits.

The story starts with Bond at his lowest ebb. Since Blofeld murdered his wife all passion for his work has disappeared, but M is willing to give him once last chance to save his career.

In a seemingly impossible mission, Bond must infiltrate the so-called Castle of Death, the home of the mysterious Dr Shatterhand. Looming on the shores of the Japanese island of Kyushu, this is no ordinary criminal hideout. Featuring a garden populated with deadly plants and venomous snakes, the compound is a veritable murder machine, with hundreds having already lost their lives to it. To get to the heart of the castle and put a stop to the madness, Bond must first master the ancient ways of the ninjutsu. And he must master them quickly, for there is much more to the sinister Dr Shatterhand than first appears.
