Ian Fleming was born in 1908 in London, England. He attended Eton College and then the Royal Military College at Sandhurst. He left there after a year to go study languages in Munich and Geneva. Fleming served as the Moscow correspondent for the Reuters News Agency from 1929 till 1933. he then became a banker and a stockholder in London until the beginning of World War II. When the war began, Fleming became the personal assistant to the Director of British Naval Intelligence, where he learned most of his espionage terms. When the war was over, he worked as the foreign manager of The Sunday Times in London. Fleming wrote twelve James Bond novels, nearly all of which were made into Motion Pictures. He died in 1964.
Dating from 1960, 1954, and 1961, these James Bond novels feature all the standard trappings for the series: master criminals, beautiful damsels in distress, and plenty of action-essentially everything fans have come to associate with 007. Though a bit dated, the Bond outings are still fun reads-great beach books-and the character is still immensely popular on screen, so these are well worth having.
James Bond is not a superstitious man, but its hard not to feel unnerved in the presence of Mr. Big. A ruthless Harlem gangster who uses voodoo to control his criminal empire, hes also one of SMERSHs top American operatives. Mr. Big has been smuggling British pirate treasure to New York from a remote Jamaican islandand funneling the proceeds to Moscow. With help from Solitaire, Mr. Bigs beautiful and enigmatic Creole fortune-teller, and his old friend Felix Leiter, 007 must locate the crime lords hideout, sabotage his operation, and reclaim the pirate hoard for England. From the jazz joints of Harlem to the shark-infested waters of the Florida Everglades, Live and Let Die sends Bond headlong into the exotic.
