Cool photographic image of Maryam D'Abo as the Czech cellist. Timothy Daltons Bond debut and a great reinforcement of the Bond. British secret agent James Bond (Timothy Dalton) helps KGB officer Georgi Koskov (Jeroen Krabbe) defect during a symphony performance. During his debriefing, Koskov reveals that a policy of assassinating defectors has been instated by new KGB head Leonid Pushkin (John Rhys-Davies). But as Bond explores this threat, a counterplot surfaces, involving a shady American arms dealer (Joe Don Baker) and a pair of Russian assassins, Necros (Andreas Wisniewski) and Kara Milovy (Maryam d'Abo).
