(The World Is Not Enough)
Sir Robert King, an oil magnate friend of James Bond (Agent
007), is murdered during a bombing at his M16 Headquarters. The
tycoon's only heir, the beautiful Elektra King, inherits billions
of dollars worth of oil deposits in the Caspian sea--as well
as some very unwanted attention.
Elektra is threatened with the
same deadly fate as her father, unless she changes the route
of Sir Robert's proposed pipeline. Feeling somewhat responsible
for the death, as he was unable to fully secure M16 from the
bomb, Bond takes on the role of bodyguard for Elektra.
world's oil supply is in peril as 007 battles the assassin, Renard,
a rabid anti-capitalist terrorist. He is a hateful, dying, psychopath
who feels no pain, due to the fact that he lives with a bullet
lodged in his brain. Renard is intent on using the resources
of King Enterprises as revenge against his hated enemies at M16.
Bond must race to defuse this international power struggle with
the world’s oil supply hanging in the balance, aware that
he's the only man who can take the heat between a beautiful heiress,
a malicious sociopath, and a world-threatening diabolical plan.
