Greed, revenge, world domination through the power of oil, high-tech terrorism... Only some of the ingredients of this latest 007 adventure which begins outside the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, continues with a spectacular high-speed boat chase up the Thames and progresses through the highlands of Scotland before Bond faces an avalanche in the Caucasus Mountains and a potential nuclear explosion in Turkey. Sir Robert King, a wealthy oil tycoon, is murdered in an unprecedented bombing at MI6's London headquarters. M takes the attack personally and sends James Bond to protect King's beautiful and fiery daughter Elektra in Turkey. For the man responsible for the bombing is 'Renard', a cruel and cunning terrorist who once attempted to kidnap Elektra King and hold her to ransom. With nuclear weapons expert Dr. Chrismas Jones at his side, Bond travels to the Caspian Sea and Istanbul where a former enemy becomes a formidable ally before the final dramatic confrontation in the claustrophobic confines of a nuclear submarine beneath the surface of the Bosporus. The World is Not Enough takes James Bond to new levels of danger, intrigue and non-stop action.
