Plots

James Bond willingly falls into an assassination plot involving a naive Russian beauty in order to retrieve a Soviet encryption device that was stolen by S.P.E.C.T.R.E. - Helltopay27

James Bond 007 is on the search for a Russian decoding machine, known as "Lektor". Bond needs to find this machine, before the evil S.P.E.C.T.R.E. organization discovers it. While being romantically linked with Russian girl, Tatiana Romanova, Bond sneaks his way around Istanbul, while each S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Agent tries to pick him off, including the over powering Donald "Red" Grant and ex K.G.B. Agent Rosa Klebb, who knows all of the tricks in the book, and even possesses an incredible poison tipped shoe. - simon_hrdng

The S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Number 1 assigns the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Number 3, Rosa Klebb, an ex S.M.E.R.S.H. operative before defecting from Russia, and the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Number 5 and expert planner Kronsteen to plot a scheme to steal the Russian's Lektor decoder and revenge on James Bond for killing Dr. No. Rosa Klebb recruits the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. assassin Grant and lures the naive and loyal Russian Corporal State Security Tatiana Romanova, who works at the Soviet consulate in Istanbul and believes that Rosa Klebb still works for S.M.E.R.S.H. Meanwhile, M summons James Bond and tells him that Tatiana wants to defect to London and has offered the Lektor as part of the bargain. However, she wants to go to England with Bond. Bond and M suspect that it might be a trap, but Bond sees Tatiana's photo and decides to go to Istanbul, where he has the support of the local operative Kerim Bey. He meets Tatiana and they plot a plan to steal the Lektor and return to London. But they do not know that they are actually pawns in the scheme plotted by S.P.E.C.T.R.E. - Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

James Bond, 007, is sent on a mission to Istanbul to try and acquire a Russian cypher machine known as "Lektor" from a defecting Russian Agent. However, the Russians have no knowledge of this, as it is a S.P.E.C.T.R.E. ploy to lure James Bond into a trap, a fitting tribute to their now-dead Agent Dr. No. - Graeme Roy

The evil S.P.E.C.T.R.E. organization has hatched a plan to steal a decoder that will access Russian state secrets and irrevocably unbalance the world order. It is up to James Bond to seize the device first, but he must confront enemies that include Red Grant and the ruthless Rosa Klebb - a former K.G.B. Agent with poison-tipped shoes. Even as Bond romances a stunning Soviet defector, he realizes he is being lured into a deadly trap, and he will need all of his courage, ability, and cutting-edge technology to triumph over the forces that seek to destroy him. - Robert Lynch
