When a British businessman and his family are killed in Japan, James Bond suspects a mass assassination. Investigating with the help of beautiful Japanese agent Reiko Tamura and his old friend Tiger Tanaka, Bond discovers that two powerful factions controlled by the mysterious terrorist Goro Yoshida are playing God. Between them they have created the perfect weapon, one small and seemingly insignificant enough to strike anywhere, unnoticed. With an emergency G7 summit meeting just days away, it's a race against time as Bond confronts both man and nature in a desperate bid to stop the release of a deadly virus that could destroy the Western world.

Set against the backdrop of the G8 summit, 007 returns to the land of the rising Sun (which he first visited in the classic You Only Live Twice) and is reunited with his old friend Tiger Tanaka to investigate the deaths of a billionaire corporate president and his family, which are tied in to a corporate takeover masterminded by the Japanese yakuza who ate intent on unleashing a genetic virus on the world.
Benson paces his story with the usual flair for detail in the story's locales, along with a thorough understanding of the Japanese underworld and mafia, while giving Bond a real run for his money.
It's too bad that this is the last of the Benson cycle. He makes for an exciting storyteller and honors the Ian Fleming franchise.
SPOILER: Insufficient explanation of the fate of Bond's son.
