Another ugly assignment for secret agent James Bond begins with the bridge game in which he is asked to take Hugo Drax, multi-millionaire, national hero, and cheat- Drax whose new rocket, the Moonraker, is to be Britain's assurance against an atomic threat. After the killing of the security officer at the Moonraker installation, Bond takes his place, and with lovely Gala Brand- also an agent, spots the dreadful deception which has been planned. For those who liked Casino Royale and Live and Let Live, this is again a violent and virulent type of espionage entertainment.
