Permission To Die
Doctor Erik Wiziadlo offers England his revolutionary satellite
launching technology. The price he asks is merely the retrieval
of the beloved niece he left behind the Iron Curtain when he defected
to the U.S. following the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.
British authorities call in 007 to facilitate the exchange, but
Bond's simple escort mission turns deadly when he discovers the
woman is being held by authorities. Then, events take an even
more sinister turn as Wiziadlo's true motivations for requesting
his niece to join him are revealed. From knife fights to helicopter
duels, this is James Bond at his best.
Bond has to attack a convoy and rescue the niece of a reclusive
scientist in order to win exclusive technology for the UK. Bond
arrives in Idaho with Edaine to investigate Wiziadio's underground
lair. 007 must prevent the Doctor from exploding his new rocket
technology in British Columbia, Canada - which he hopes will cause
global nuclear disarmament.
