9780099576969: The Spy Who Loved Me: James Bond 007

For the first time, followers of the James Bond adventures will see Agent 007 as he appears through the eyes of a beautiful woman, a woman who, in the midst of brutality and terror, recognizes Bond for what he is: a handsome and appealing killer. But only a killer can help her now.

Vivienne Michell is in trouble. Trying to escape her tangled past, she has run away to the American backwoods, winding up at the Dreamy Pines Motor Court. A far cry from the privileged world she was born to, the motel is also the destination of two hardened killers the perverse Sol Horror and the deadly Sluggsy Morant. When a coolly charismatic Englishman turns up, Viv, in terrible danger, is not just hopeful but fascinated. Because he is James Bond, 007; the man she hopes will save her, the spy she hopes will love her.

This story of a night of horrifying fear in the Adirondacks bears the customary Fleming hallmark: what Max Lerner in theNew YorkPostcalled his enormous resourcefulness his sure sense of what will fascinate and terrify the reader, his contriving of hairbreadth escapes. "

'You take a wrong step, play the wrong card in Fate's game, and you're lost in a world you had never imagined, against which you have no weapons. No compass.'

When she stumbles into a criminal plot, her life seems over...until a chance encounter with James Bond turns her world upside down. Ian Fleming's tenth 007 novel is a unique view of Bond, through the eyes of a woman who loves him.

About the Author:

Ian Lancaster Fleming was born in London on 28 May 1908 and was educated at Eton College before spending a formative period studying languages in Europe. His first job was with Reuters news agency, followed by a brief spell as a stockbroker. On the outbreak of the Second World War he was appointed assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence, Admiral Godfrey, where he played a key part in British and Allied espionage operations. After the war he joined Kemsley Newspapers as Foreign Manager of the Sunday Times, running a network of correspondents who were intimately involved in the Cold War. His first novel, Casino Royale, was published in 1953 and introduced James Bond, Special Agent 007, to the world. The first print run sold out within a month. Following this initial success, he published a Bond title every year until his death. His own travels, interests and wartime experience gave authority to everything he wrote. Raymond Chandler hailed him as 'the most forceful and driving writer of thrillers in England.' The fifth title, From Russia with Love, was particularly well received and sales soared when President Kennedy named it as one of his favourite books. The Bond novels have sold more than sixty million copies and inspired a hugely successful film franchise which began in 1962 with the release of Dr No starring Sean Connery as 007. The Bond books were written in Jamaica, a country Fleming fell in love with during the war and where he built a house, 'Goldeneye'. He married Anne Rothermere in 1952. His story about a magical car, written in 1961 for their only child Caspar, went on to become the well-loved novel and film, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Fleming died of heart failure on 12 August 1964, aged fifty-six. www.ianfleming.com
