Introducing James Bond: charming, sophisticated, handsome; chillingly ruthless and very deadly.
In his first mission, agent 007 must neutralize a lethal Russian operative known as 'The Cypher' by ruining him at the Baccarat table and forcing his 'retirement'. Lady luck appears to be taken with Bond. The Cypher has hit a losing streak, but Bond's attraction to a beautiful female agent leads him to disaster and an unexpected saviour.
