  • James Bond is sent into North Korea to take out a rogue North Korean Colonel. Bond takes the place of a man the Colonel does business with. Bond placed everything in place but just as Bond was about to do the job, the Colonel finds out who Bond is. He was about to kill Bond when Bond placed his plan in motion which caused enough confusion for him to get away. He then chases the Colonel. In the end, the Colonel goes into the river and is believed to be dead. Bond is captured by the Colonel's father, a General who then holds Bond for over a year. One day, the General takes Bond to the border where he is traded for the Colonel's right hand man. When Bond reaches M, he is knocked out. He then wakes up in a detention cell and M tells him, he was not rescued he was extracted. It seems they were getting reports of confidential in formation coming out of the prison where Bond was being held, so they assume Bond was spilling his guts which he denies doing. He then tells M that the Colonel somehow found out who he is from someone in the West who was giving the Colonel info, his father, the General confirmed it. Bond deduces that this person made it appear he was giving information so that they would trade him for the Colonel's man which is what it was all about. M tells Bond is no longer an agent and is on his way to their detention center. But Bond gets out and then goes to see the Chinese who want to see the Colonel's man dead because he killed some Chinese officials which he was captured for. They then send Bond to Cuba where they say the man is now. Bond learns he is at a special clinic where some unusual treatments are going on. Bond goes to the clinic and finds him undergoing a treatment to change his appearance but Bond interferes and tries to get him to tell him who his inside source is but he gets away and the clinic is blown up by a woman Bond met before going to the clinic. Bond takes something off the man and learns it's diamonds which are marked as being the property of Gustav Graves a Norweigian who supposedly found diamonds in an ice field but Bond says they look like African conflict diamonds which was among the things the Colonel was in to. So Bond decides to check out Graves. After their first meeting which was not exactly cordial, Bond gets a message to meet M and he tells her what he thinks of Graves. She allows him to pursue his suspicions.
