Milton Krest is fictional villain on "Licence to Kill".

The owner of a marine resarch foundation, Krest is a business partner and collaborator with Franz Sanchez. He uses a laboratory of suppodely genetically engineered maggots to conceal drugs, and his submarine remote probe, Sentinel, is used to pass the drug shipments on to seaplanes at a distance from his boat, The WaveKrest. He drunkenly attempts to seduce his partner's mistress, Lupe Lamora.

Krest's behavior backfires when Lupe pretends she didn't see Bond on his yacht as he was sabotaging a drugs deal by destroying the narcotics in the Sentinel and escaping with US $5 million in cash.

Bond infiltrates Sanchez's inner circle and convinces the drug baron that Krest is trying to have him killed, using a hitman who expecting to be paid in cash that evening. Bond then sneaks aboard the WaveKrest and stashes the remaining cash from the drug deal back aboard the boat, in time for Sanchez to find it and presume that this is the hitman's payoff. Sanchez kills Krest by forcing him into the decompression chamber containing the money, increasing the pressure inside the chamber and then tearing the air tubes open with an axe, causing rapid depressurisation and Krest's head to explode in a bloody mess.

Krest appear in James Bond short story "The Hildebrand Rarity", part of the "For Your Eyes Only" collection.
