James Bond begins a mission that will become an obsession the night that Flight 229 is torn apart at Washington airport, killing 435 passengers. But the victim that matters most to 007 is the Principessa Sukie Tempesta: once his lover, still his friend.
The search for Sukie's killers will turn out to be the most complex and demanding assignment of Bond's career. Across continents and through ever-changing labyrinths of evil, he follows the traces of clues into the centre of a fanatical society more deadly than any terrorist army. Its code name is COLD.
COLD is the sixteenth and final Bond novel by John Gardner and the action takes place both before and after Bond's outings in SeaFire and Never Send Flowers.
