Soon he is trapped in a deadly war of secrets and lies, as a nightmare reunion with a bitter enemy plunges him once more into the face of death. With nowhere to run and no one to trust, James will have to uncover the truth behind an evil plot before all is lost.Life for James Bond will never be the same again.
