John Strangways, an MI6 Station Chief based in Jamaica, is murdered by a trio of assassins, along with his secretary, before his home is ransacked. When news reaches M, the head of MI6, that Strangways has vanished, he assigns agent James Bond to investigate the matter and determine if it is related to Strangways' decision to co-operate on a CIA case involving the disruption of rocket launches from Cape Canaveral by radio jamming. When Bond arrives in Jamaica, he is immediately accosted by a man claiming to be a chaffeur sent to collect him, but who is really an enemy agent sent to kill him. Before Bond can interrogate him, following a struggle, the agent kills himself with a cyanide capsule. After visiting Strangways' house, Bond confronts a boatman that Strangways was acquainted with. The boatman, named Quarrel, reveals that he is aiding the CIA and introduces Bond to CIA agent Felix Leiter, who is also investigating Strangways' disappearance.
