This is the best book in the series. It once again involves Spectre and bounces back from "The Spy Who Loved Me" greatly. It involves Bond going undercover as Sir Hillary Bray and went to Piz Gloria in the Swiss Alps to see what Ernst Stravo Blofeld is up to. 007 finds out that Blofeld runs an allergy clinic and it has 10 beatiful girls from around the British isles. Blofeld is brainwashing them to spread a virus across the entire British isles poultry. After 007 is reveled, he skis down Piz Gloria and escapes Blofeld's henchmen after coincidently meeting Tracy (she was a girl he met in the beggining in the book) and she helps him escape. Bond proposes to Tracy. He then has to go back with her father and destroys Blofelds Piz Gloria base and 007 chases Blofeld while bobsleding. Blofeld gets away but the clinic was destroyed. After 007 and Tracy have their wedding, they drive in an open roofed car. Blofeld and Irma Blunt come up behind them and they kill Tracy. I gave this a A or a five star rating because this book is not shortened or dragged too long at all. The storyline is awsome with both Blofeld and Tracy. This is a must read book even if you havent read the others.
