Plot Summary:

007 is sent to stop a diabolically brilliant heroin magnate armed with a complex organization and a reliable psychic tarot card reader. Several British agents investigating drug smuggling are killed in mysterious circumstances. Each murder is linked to a Harlem crime boss, Mr. Big, and an international diplomat, Kananga, a secretive owner of a small Caribbean island. When 007 arrives in New York, he is nearly killed by one of Mr. Big's hoods. The attempt gives Bond a lead that Mr. Big and Kananga are one in the same man. He soon discovers a plot to flood the US mainland with a billion dollars worth of heroin. However, Kananga is not a man to be dealt with lightly. The fact that his beautiful tarot-card reader, Solitaire, has already been seduced by 007 makes matters worse.
