In the tropical paradise of Jamaica, things are not as picturesque as the travel brochures would suggest. Sent to stop a notorious arms dealer called Rifle, James Bond once again finds more than he bargained for. Rifle's clients turn out to be Elias Hazlewood and the Disciples of the Heavenly Way, a successful televangelist operation. Among the Way's membership is Maximillian "Quasimodo" Steel, a reformed mercenary. He's got a plan to stop the Beast and further God's cause. That is, unless James Bond can stop him first.
