FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

By Ian Fleming

Publisher: Viking

Five shorter appearances for "flint-eyed" James Bond cuts him down to size as well-- and if he's not quite as virile or virulent as he has been- he's still a pretty able performer. In Paris, he uncovers an enemy installation within SHAPE; from Jamaica- he pursues the murder of old friends of M's; in Nassau, he just listens in on an old story of a cuckolded husband's hatred; in Italy, he trails an opium operation; and in tropical waters he cruises with an impossibly ruthless rich man who applies a sting-ray whip on his wife. It's expectedly exotic, resilient and potent.
