Live and Let Die was adapted into the eighth Bond film of the same name in 1973. Major elements, scenes, and characters from the novel have subsequently been adapted in the films For Your Eyes Only (1981) and License to Kill (1989).
Bond is sent to Harlem, New York to investigate Mr. Big, a SMERSH operative who's funding global operations by selling pirated 17th century Spanish coins. Bond is excited about the opportunity to get back at SMERSH after his torture at the hands of a mysterious SMERSH agent in Casino Royale. Bond teams up with his old friend Felix Leiter and they investigate Mr. Big's operations in New York and in Florida, eventually leading Bond to Mr. Big's private island near Jamaica. Bond trains with his friend Quarrel, and with the help of Mr. Big's fortune-telling girlfriend Solitaire, Bond discovers that Mr. Big is smuggling the coins out of the US in exotic fish tanks. Bond locates Mr. Big's yacht, plants an explosive on its belly, and escapes with Solitaire just as the yacht explodes.
