As Agent 86 for Control, Max Smart has often matched wits with the evil operatives of KAOS, while the fate of the whole free world hung in the balance. But now, assigned to Operation Button, Button, Who'll Punch the Button, he's faced with another terrifying challenge, for this time it's the fate of Control that hangs in the balance - and that means that Max's job is endangered!

Through a spectacular stroke of good luck, Control has in its possession KAOS's Little Black Book, with complete details of the location, layout and organizational structure of every one of KAOS's installations. Control also has a powerful explosive, so tiny that it can be concealed in any target area and detonated from afar. Thus it is in Control's power to destroy KAOS completely.

But through a spectacular stroke of bad luck, KAOS has in it's possession Control's Little Black Book, filled with its top-secret locations, and KAOS has also developed a similarly powerful explosive.

The race is on - who is going to infiltrate the opposing installations and push the button first? Will it be shrewd, clever Max Smart, or will it be the sly and sneaky KAOS men? And what will be the dire consequences? - for with Max Smart in on the action, you just know the consequences will be very dire indeed!
