Until now.

It begins with Bond going on vacation on the European Continent, but when sudden death seems to follow him at every turn, Bond suspects foul play, but he has no idea at the horrifying extent of his ordeal. SPECTRE has returned and it's leader Tamil Rahini is dying. He has one last wish: The head of James Bond on a silver platter. He organizes a "Head Hunt" where any criminal organization in the world is eligible. The prize? 10 million Swiss Marks. The object: present James Bond's head to SPECTRE before he dies.

But they've underestimated just how far Bond is willing to go to keep his head: To get a chance at Rahini he'll have to survive a fiendish encounter with a Nazi war Criminal, the return of his old foes SMERSH, an attack by an infected vampire bat, a pair of sexy bodyguards, a climatic showdown before Madame Guillotine, and of course, the threat of constant betrayal by his friends at every turn.
