Goldfinger, the man who loved gold, said, 'Mr Bond, it was a most evil day for you when you first crossed my path. If you had then found an oracle to consult, the oracle would have said to you "Mr Bond keep away from Mr Auric Goldfinger. He is a most powerful man. If Mr Goldfinger wished to crush you, he would only have to turn over in his sleep to do so."'

With the lazy precision of Fate, this, Ian Fleming's longest narrative of secret service adventure, brings James Bond to grips with the most powerful criminal the world has ever known - Goldfinger, the man who had planned the 'Crime de la Crime'.

Le Chiffre, Mr Big, Sir Hugo Drax, Jack Spang, Rosa Klebb, Dr No - and now the seventh adversary, a Goliath of Crime.
