On Her Majesty's Secret ServiceBook - 1963
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.
