A brainwashed James Bond has tried—and failed—to assassinate M, his boss. Now Bond has to prove he is back on form and can be trusted again. All 007 has to do is kill one of the most deadly freelance hit men in the world: Paco “Pistols” Scaramanga, the Man with the Golden Gun. But despite his license to kill, 007 is no assassin, and on finding Scaramanga in the sultry heat of Jamaica, he decides to infiltrate the killer’s criminal cooperative—and realizes that he will have to take him out as swiftly as possible. Otherwise 007 might just be the next on a long list of British Secret Service numbers retired by the Man with the Golden Gun...

Brainwashed by the KGB, James Bond is prevented from assassinating M. and, assisted by Mary Goodnight, takes on the KGB-controlled killer Francisco Scaramanga, following him on a perilous trail through bordello, bedrooms, and mangrove swamp. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.

Still good after all these years. But you wonder why he didn't kill the guy at the beginning of the book. That was his job, no? All in all, things seemed all too tidy, all too predictable. It wouldn't do to write such a book today. It would be perceived like writing by numbers. Not much left to the imagination.
