Who is Auric Goldfinger? The Bank of England wants to know and they're also curious to find out what he's done with the huge stock of gold he's been collecting since the war.
James Bond is put on the trail. This isn't the first time 007 has come across the enigmatic millionaire and he quickly discovers that Goldfinger never forgets and never forgives.
Bond is drawn inexorably into the most ambitious heist of the century and finds himself the only defence against Goldfinger's murderous mania for gold.
