But I am greedy for life. I do too much of everything all the time'. The fifth of the James Bond titles by Ian Fleming, considered by some to be the best. In a contemporary review The Times Literary Supplement described this as Fleming's 'tautest, most exciting and most brilliant tale'. It is the first Bond novel with a jacket by Richard Chopping, who went on to execute many of the subsequent Bond covers, often in collaboration with Fleming himself.

First edition; 8vo; publisher's black cloth, spine and upper side stamped in silver and metallic red, dust-jacket designed by Richard Chopping, unclipped, rear panel a little dust soiled, slight rubbing at extremities, otherwise a bright and very good-plus copy.
