Goldfinger

by Ian Fleming, John Cork

Part of the James Bond 007 Series

Goldfinger Synopsis

INCLUDES ARCHIVE MATERIAL AND A NEW INTRODUCTION FROM JOHN CORK Who is Auric Goldfinger? The Bank of England wants to know and they're eager to discover what he's done with the gold he's been stockpiling since the War. James Bond is put on the trail, but this isn't the first time 007 has crossed paths with the enigmatic millionaire. Inexorably drawn into the most ambitious heist of the century, Bond soon learns that Goldfinger never forgets and never forgives. Greed and power have created a deadly opponent who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, and against Goldfinger's murderous mania for gold, Bond may prove the only defence. `Nobody else does this sort of thing as well as Mr. Fleming... It offers more passages of sustained excitement than we are likely to get from any other thriller this year' Sunday Times
