James Bond je na sledi dolgoletnemu sovražniku Ernstu Blofeldu, ki namerava ustvariti laserski satelit, s katerim bo lahko uničil tarče kjerkoli na Zemlji. Medtem Bond raziskuje tudi krajo velikih količin južnoafriških diamantov. Da bi našel krivca, se izdaja za tihotapca diamantov Petra Franksa. Kmalu odkrije, da za vsem skupaj ponovno stoji Blofeld. Med nalogo Bond spozna lepo tihotapko Tiffany Case ter se sooči z nenavadnima morilcema in dvema pomanjkljivo oblečenima lepoticama, ki obvladata borilne veščine.
James Bond's mission is to find out who has been smuggling diamonds, which are not re-appearing. He adopts another identity in the form of Peter Franks. He joins up with Tiffany Case, and acts as if he is smuggling the diamonds, but everyone is hungry for these diamonds. He also has to avoid Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd, the dangerous couple who do not leave anyone in their way. Ernst Stavro Blofeld isn't out of the question. He may have changed his looks, but is he linked with the heist? And if he is, can Bond finally defeat his ultimate enemy.
