In different corners of the world four high-profile figures are assassinated in less than a week. Nobody links the deaths but one thing is certain: each of them has been stalked, sought out, and killed with care and preparation. Then a sinister connection is established: a single, blood-tipped rose is sent to each funeral and an unremarkable female agent is murdered in Switzerland.
When MI5 come to MI6 to ask for help M brings in his best. At first, a weekend abroad seems tempting to James Bond: especially when he’s paired with Flicka von Grusse, a gorgeous Swiss intelligence officer. But this is a perilous assignment that starts with the mysterious actor David Dragonpol and leads them to Athens, Milan, and on to EuroDisney…and an explosive climax.

YOU GET Hookewd by the very first page after you start this thriller!
If you need action and crave it like life, get another Bond book. One bad part is that there are very few action scenes and they are very far apart, sometimes by as much as 50 to 100 pages. At first it seems like a mystery to one who is surprised by this, but the mystery gets solved at Bond's first hunch. The plot is interesting. I especially liked the part where Bond and Flicka were trying to escape Dragonpol's mansion and the fight underwater. If you want action every 20 pages, see the book on the recommendation list.
