James Bond is marked for death by the Soviet counterintelligence agency SMERSH in Ian Fleming#146;s masterful spy thriller, and the novel that President John F. Kennedy named one of his favorite books of all time. SMERSH stands for "Death to Spies" and there#146;s no secret agent they#146;d like to disgrace and destroy more than 007, James Bond. But ensnaring the British Secret Service#146;s most lethal operative will require a lure so tempting even he can#146;t resist. Enter Tatiana Romanova, a ravishing Russian spy whose "defection" springs a trap designed with clockwork precision. Her mission: seduce Bond, then flee to the West on the Orient Express. Waiting in the shadows are two of Ian Fleming#146;s most vividly drawn villains: Red Grant, SMERSH#146;s deadliest assassin, and the sinister operations chief Rosa Klebb--five feet four inches of pure killing power. Bursting with action and intrigue, From Russia with Love is one of the best-loved books in the Bond canon--an instant classic that set the standard for sophisticated literary spycraft for decades to come.
