The diamond smugglers by ian fleming
Unavailable for many years, this work of non-fiction is reissued with introductions by Fergus Fleming and presented in an all-new limited edition hardback format by Ian Fleming Publications Ltd.

The Diamond Smugglers is a book that starts with a phone call. 'One day in April 1957,' Fleming writes, 'I had just answered a letter from an expert in unarmed combat writing from a cover address in Mexico City, and I was thanking a fan in Chile, when my telephone rang...” The voice at the other end asks if he’d like an assignment. Within weeks he is in Tangier speaking to “John Blaize”, an ex-MI5 agent now contracted by a diamond firm to break an international smuggling ring.

Fleming picks up the trail in a unique piece of investigative journalism that combines treasure and travel, cunning and criminality - the elements that had always attracted the creator of James Bond.

This new edition is presented with an introduction by Fleming’s nephew, Fergus Fleming, himself an acclaimed writer of travel and exploration.

The price is £18 includes postage and packaging within the UK.
