James Bond's passion for his job has gone cold and the only thing that can warm it up is his interest in Contessa "Tracy" Di Vicenzo, a troubled woman who has a penchant for fast cars, gambling and danger. Tracy pulls Bond closer but not close enough; however, if her father a powerful gangland boss can get him close to Blofeld he may be able to consider settling down with Tracy. But Bond is not one to settle down and the unexpected leads to the unthinkable.
