A definitive collection of Ian Fleming novels featuring James Bond's greatest foe
Considered by fans to be the most emotionally intense of Ian Fleming's thrillers, these three novels feature 007's true nemesis: the relentless, nefarious Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Thunderball whisks Bond to the Bahamas, where Blofeld and the SPECTRE organization threaten to destabilize the world with two stolen atomic bombs. On Her Majesty's Secret Service features the thrilling Alpine ski chase that is so well remembered by fans of 007, and sees Bond's new wife killed by Blofeld. The British agent is sent into a tailspin that nearly destroys him before he's finally able to exact revenge in You Only Live Twice. Featuring all the action and intrigue of the Bond franchise with an extra dose of personal vendetta, this trilogy is a must for every fan of the greatest secret agent in literary history.

Ian Fleming (1908-1964), creator of the world's best-known secret agent, is the author of fourteen James Bond books. Born in London in 1908 and educated at Eton and Sandhurst, he became the Reuters Moscow correspondent in 1929. In the spring of 1939, Fleming went back to Moscow as a special correspondent for the London Times. In June of that same year, he joined Naval Intelligence and served throughout World War II, finally earning the rank of Commander, RNVSR (Sp.). Much of the James Bond material was drawn directly from Fleming's experiences as an intelligence officer. Later, Fleming became a consultant on foreign affairs for the London Sunday Times, by which time he had become far better known as the creator of James Bond.
