The pair exchange sign/countersigns and walk along the wharf, discussing industrialist Max Zorin's activities. Lee provides details on the individuals 007 covertly photographed during Zorin's thoroughbred sale at his French chateau; identifying Bob Conley and Dr. Carl Mortner, real name Hans Glaub, who is revealed to be a former Nazi scientist specializing in eugenics. He also draws Bond's attention to mysterious activities taking place around one of Zorin's oil pumping stations and introduces him to one of the local fishermen. Lee later meets with Bond at the home of oil heiress, Stacey Sutton, to exchange and update information about Zorin. Suspecting Zorin of attempting to create an artificial earthquake, Lee leaves to inform his superiors in the CIA. However, as he climbs into the driver's seat of his car, he is strangled from behind by Zorin's assassin, May Day. The San Francisco Police Department later informs Bond, who they suspect of his murder, that Lee's body was found in Chinatown.
