Description


In the aftermath of Operation Thunderball, Ernst Stavro Blofeld's trail has gone cold--and so has 007's love for his job. The only thing that can rekindle his passion is Contessa Teresa "Tracy" di Vicenzo, a troubled young woman who shares his taste for fast cars and danger. She's the daughter of a powerful crime boss, and he thinks Bond's hand in marriage may be the solution to all her problems. Bond's not ready to settle down--yet--but he soon finds himself falling for the enigmatic Tracy.

After finally tracking the SPECTRE chief to a stronghold in the Swiss Alps, Bond uncovers the details of Blofeld's latest plot: a biological warfare scheme more audacious than anything the fiend has tried before. Now Bond must save the world once again--and survive Blofeld's last, very personal, act of vengeance.

The text in this edition has been restored by the Fleming family company Ian Fleming Publications, to reflect the work as it was originally published.

This book is SO amazing! A beautifully written scientific and personal memoir that is informative, touching, heart-breaking, and inspiring. Jahren’s descriptions of her life and scientific research into the intricacies of the plant world are as poetic and poignant as it gets. The story weaves through her early upbringing in Minnesota, her education, starting her lab with her lovable and eccentric lab partner Bill. It then follows her finding love, motherhood, and her ground-breaking geobiology research. Reading this is like taking a walk through the forest with a friend. Every word is filled with authenticity and a fervent passion for science and this book makes me proud to be studying to become a scientist. It’s a must read for those interested in the natural world or any human who has ever had feelings. - Linnea
