Description

'"Bond was a good agent once', said M. 'There's no reason why he shouldn't be a good agent again. Get me the file on Scaramanga. If we can get him fit, that's the right-sized target for 007.' 'But that's suicide, sir!' Even 007 could never take him. A brainwashed James Bond has tried-and failed-to assassinate M, his boss. Now Bond has to prove he is back on form and can be trusted again. All 007 has to do is kill one of the most deadly freelance hit men in the world: Paco "Pistols" Scaramanga, the Man with the Golden Gun. But despite his license to kill, 007 is no assassin, and on finding Scaramanga in the sultry heat of Jamaica, he decides to infiltrate the killer's criminal cooperative-and realizes that he will have to take him out as swiftly as possible. Otherwise 007 might just be the next on a long list of British Secret Service numbers retired by the Man with the Golden Gun...
