Tape Recorder Book
Gadget: Tape Recorder Book
Owner: James Bond
A clever little tape recorder concealed in the carved out pages
of a thick dictionary.
When Bond was out of his hotel, he activated the reel-to-reel
before he left. On return, Bond replayed the tape, and detected
noise, meaning that someone was in his room. Bond went into the
bathroom and discovered Quist, one of Largo's brainless hit men,
Quist was standing behind the shower curtain. Bond turned on the
shower full heat, and scalded Quist who hobbled out of the shower,
Bond spared his life and roughly threw him out of the hotel room.
An ordinary thick dictionary however in the middle of the book
and big square chunk of pages had bet cut out. Inside the cut-out
was a tiny reel-to-reel recorder, and the play, stop and fast
forward/rewind buttons were cleverly concealed under a few of
the thumb indents.
