'One day in April 1957 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 Diamond Smugglers is the true story of an operation responsible for smuggling millions of pounds worth of precious gems out of Africa. Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, drew on interviews with the reluctant hero of the diamond companies' counter-attack to explore the world of the real master criminals of his time.The result rivals Fleming's greatest spy novels.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is often difficult to remember that we are not listening to his old hero Mr. James Bond...several yarns are worthy of the best spy-stories * Observer *
An exciting and richly fascinating account * Sunday Times *
Fleming not only had a gift for gripping plots, but an abundantly moreish prose style with pin-sharp descriptions. Betjeman was right. Fleming conjured an entire world, infinitely more colourful than our own, and one that may well go on for ever * Daily Telegraph *
Fleming's books are well-written, pacy and hard-edged -- Lee Child * Daily Mail *

“Good”

Fascinating account of the true life crime. Fleming tells the story with his usual verve. Interesting.
