Publication of a new paperback edition of Scorpius, John Gardner's seventh James Bond novel. The book is published by Orion Books in the UK.

When the body of a mysterious woman is found to be carrying the phone number of James Bond, Bond is called in by M to help the investigation. But before he can even reach headquarters he is nearly run off the road in a high-speed motorway chase. Someone wants Bond dead.

When Bond discovers that the woman was a member of a cult society known as "The Meek Ones", with murky links to a wealthy arms dealer. Soon, hideous acts of terrorism begin to roll out across Britain and Bond finds himself in a race against time to track down the faceless criminal behind the horror.


John Gardner began his career as a novelist in 1964, with 'The Liquidator', featuring the character Boysie Oakes. In 1981, Gardner was asked to revive Ian Fleming's James Bond series of novels. Gardner wrote fourteen James Bond novels, and the novelizations of two James Bond film adventures, Licence to Kill (1989) and GoldenEye (1995).
