Around the world in 007 ways|
After oil tycoon Sir Robert King is killed in a bombing at MI6 headquarters, his daughter, Elektra, inherits his fortune -- billions of dollars worth of oil deposits in the Caspian Sea...and James Bond, 007, as a bodyguard. Her new wealth attracts international interest. But she has also attracted the attentions of her father's killer....
His name is Renard. A bullet lodged in his brain has rendered him unable to feel physical pain, and he has but one reason left to live -- revenge. There's only one man who take the heat between a beautiful heiress, a malicious sociopath and his final diabolical plan.

The German "official book of the film", this is quite different from the British companion. This book is softcover and is about 95% full of color photos, with explanatory text. The book is heavy on pics of Sophie Marceau (and fairly Denise Richards-lite). 78 pages, on decent-quality paper.
