This was actually written by Ian Fleming as the sequel to 'O.H.M.S.S.' although it was brought to the screen first. Bond, in Japan, investigates a sinister new threat to the American space programme. Ernst Stavro Blofeld is back with a missile installation hidden inside the false crater of a volcano. 007 discovers the location with the help of the gorgeous Mie Hama and storms the launch site with a team of trained Ninja warriors before finally destroying the enemy missile with only seconds to spare before launch.

His troubles aren't over though as the place starts blowing up and disintegrating around him . . .and in the confusion, Blofeld escapes again.
