No Deals, Mr. Bond begins with a mission in the Baltic Sea dubbed "Seahawk", which involves James Bond stealthily extracting two women that have completed an assignment in East Germany. It has the distinction of being the first and, thus far, only non-novelisation James Bond novel to incorporate the agent's name into the title.
