Secret agent James Bond returns in ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’, with Ian Fleming at the height of his powers, every page dripping with action, romance and tragedy, and his complex and enduringly compelling hero sits at the heart of it all. This is also the second book in the ‘Blofeld trilogy’, bringing Bond and his enemy face to face for the first time – with explosive results.
Bond has been chasing rumours of his nemesis all over Europe, to no avail. He is reaching the limits of his endurance when information from an unexpected source exposes his prey at last; Ernst Stavro Blofeld, with a new face and a new plan, has alighted in the icy peaks of the Alps. Inside Blofeld’s exclusive ski resort and research station, Bond finds an even greater surprise – a number of beautiful young British girls, all hoping to have their allergies cured by a series of unorthodox treatments. Can it be true that Blofeld has dedicated his life to benign scientific pursuits? Bond thinks not, but it will take every inch of his cunning and skill to find out. After all, there are many ways to die at 10,000 feet.
