The choice is exercised partly by renewal of Bond s passion for that prince of cars, the Bentley. His departure from the Service requires rather more explanation. Questions in the House all revolved round a possible security leak, with Her Majesty s Opposition declaring a cover-up. Bond s grievance is less that he should come under suspicion than that his honor is impeached by the manner in which the truth is exposed.
John Gardner s fiendish plot embroils his hero with a computer wizard absconding from his duties at the Pentagon, a sinister mercenary army training in secret for an audacious terrorist operation, and a white-knuckle flight over Geneva while Summit Peace Talks are in progress there, before Bond s honor is fully restored.
