James Bond—arch-enemy of SMERSH, subjugator of the master fiends Goldfinger and Dr. No, has been brainwashed by Soviet captors into becoming the tool of Russia’s K.G.B. Secret agent 007 is deliberately setting out to perpetrate an act of treachery against the British Secret Service.
Thus begins Ian Fleming’s last Bond book, The Man With the Golden Gun, which pits 007 against a most adroit and ruthless assassin. His name is Francisco Scaramanga and he is a master of destruction, a king of death. The two meet in mortal combat in Jamaica. Their terrified witness is the charming and beautiful Miss Mary Goodnight, the one woman who has successfully resisted Bond’s every attempt to woo her.—excerpts from front jacket.

Author Bio for Fleming, Ian
Ian Lancaster Fleming (28 May 1908 – 12 August 1964) was an English author, journalist and naval intelligence officer, best known for his James Bond series of spy novels. Fleming came from a wealthy family connected to the merchant bank Robert Fleming & Co., and his father was the Member of Parliament for Henley from 1910 until his death on the Western Front in 1917. Educated at Eton, Sandhurst and, briefly, the universities of Munich and Geneva, Fleming moved through several jobs before he started writing.--Wikipedia.
