James Bond, on a trail of revenge from the Casino Royale, is sent to New York to get a line on Mr. Big, a Negro criminal and Soviet agent who is disbursing coins from the pirate Morgan’s treasure. Picked up and almost off in Harlem, Bond is introduced to Mr. Big’s brutal refinements, saved by his girl, Solitaire, and escapes to Florida where his associate meets a dreadful death. On to Jamaica, Bond completes his mission underwater and in spite of sharks and barracuda and Mr. Big—comes up alive. Bloodshot.
