On Her Majesty’s Secret Service by The Folio Society

In the tenth volume in The Folio Society’s endlessly popular James Bond collection, Fleming sweeps the reader up into the thin and dangerous atmosphere of the Alps in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Bond and his enemy Ernst Stavro Blofeld come face to face for the first time in this second book in the ‘Blofeld trilogy’ – with explosive results.

Artist Fay Dalton continues her brilliant work on the series, bringing us a vision of Bond that captures all the glamour and the grit of Fleming’s world with seven full-page colour illustrations. Tracy, the woman who wins Bond’s heart by recklessly outdriving him, sizzles on the page, while the sinister Blofeld oozes menace.

The elegantly understated binding design nods to both the location of Bond’s latest adventure and the agent’s love of smart suits.

Bond has been chasing rumours of his nemesis all over Europe when information from an unexpected source exposes his prey at last; Blofeld has alighted in the icy peaks of the Alps. Inside Blofeld’s exclusive ski resort and research station, Bond finds a number of beautiful young British girls, all hoping to have their allergies cured by a series of unorthodox treatments.

Can it be true that Blofeld has dedicated his life to benign scientific pursuits? Bond thinks not, but it will take every inch of his cunning and skill to find out. After all, there are many ways to die at 10,000 feet.
