In a highly secret office somewhere in London, a murder is to be attempted. M is to be the victim — and the assassin is to be James Bond!
Bond, believed dead for a year following the events of You Only Live Twice, returns to England. Brainwashed by the KGB, he believes his mission is to assassinate M. After his mind is “scrubbed”, he is given a chance to redeem himself. The mission: to go to the Caribbean and track down Francisco Scaramanga, the one they call the Man with the Golden Gun. He has built a deadly laser for the express purpose of killing. With his single-action, gold-plated Colt.45 and his deadeye accuracy, Scaramanga is deemed too deadly to live.
