'The first shot had been fired. There would be others. And whose finger was on the trigger? Who had got him so accurately in their sights?' Dr Julius No is a deformed mine-owner with a sadistic streak and a mysterious past. Nobody knows what secrets are hidden on his Jamaican island, and all those who have attempted to investigate further have disappeared. The test? If he makes it through Dr No's jungle defences, 007 must steel himself against the Doctor's twisted twin obsessions with power and pain and survive a deadly assault course, carefully constructed to inflict maximum agony. Crab Key island is bleak, desolate and remote. So why is Dr No defending it so ruthlessly? Only Bond can uncover the truth, in Fleming's sixth 007 adventure.
