Background: Stationed with the French Secret Service, LaPorte was assigned to assist James in anything he needed while in Paris. James was at the funeral of Jack Bouvard, an enemy agent who had killed a colleague of Bond`s. But things weren`t as they seemed. Bouvard`s “widow” turned about to be Bouvard, who was hiding in drag. Bond and LaPorte corned him at a chateau outside of Paris. Bond strangled Bouvard with a poker, strapped on a jet pack, and flew above and beyond to the waiting arms of LaPorte and his Aston Martin.
