In the higher ranges of Secret Service work the actual facts in many cases were in every respect equal to the most fantastic inventions of romance and melodrama. Tangle within tangle, plot and counter-plot, ruse and treachery, cross and double-cross, true agent, false agent, double agent, gold and steel, the bomb, the dagger and the firing party, were interwoven in many a texture so intricate as to be incredible and yet true. The Chief and the High Officers of the Secret Service revelled in these subterranean labyrinths, and pursued their task with cold and silent passion.' SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL in Thoughts and Adventures.

It is in these higher ranges of Secret Service work that James Bond operates on the very outside edge of danger, and, in this story, among hazards no reader will easily forget.

Ian Fleming's first book Casino Royale, an account of the gambling assignment that nearly cost Bond his life, was described as 'the best thriller since the war'.

Live and Let Die, a breath-taking hunt for secret treasure that takes Bond to Harlem, Florida and Jamaica is still better.
