The SPECTRE organization plots to steal a new Russian encryption device, the Lektor, by baiting James Bond with Tatiana Romanova, a beautiful double agent planted at the Russian consulate in Istanbul; their plan is to snatch the device in the chaos of British-Russian crossfire. In the confusion, SPECTRE hopes to kill Bond as well. Among the best of the series; less formulaic than any subsequent Bond films, being more a spy thriller than an action film.
