Summary

'Marvellously entertaining and informative' Spectator 
 
'Thrilling' Sunday Times  
 
'An entertaining mix of history, espionage, biography, and post-war sociology' Literary Review 
_____________________ 
 
'I am going to write the spy story to end all spy stories.' 
  
One morning in February 1952, a journalist called Ian Fleming sat down at his desk and set about creating a fictional secret agent. James Bond was born and would go on to become one of the most successful, enduring and lucrative creations in literature. But Bond's world of glamour and romance, gadgets and cocktails, espionage and villainy wasn't entirely drawn from imagination: Fleming's background and his experiences as an intelligence officer during the Second World War were all formative parts in the creation of the world's most famous spy.  
 
Packed with astonishing detail and written in Macintyre's inimitable style, For Your Eyes Only is the most enlightening, enlivening book on the creator of the spy who not only lived twice, but proved to be immortal.

    After a couple of years, I’ve finally finished this book. It contains a sixth and concluding part of the story. To think I only intended to write a single part, mainly because I was big on writing short stories back then. Anyway, I do hope you enjoy this sci-fi story as much as I enjoyed writing it. 
     
    This book is intended for adults only. All characters depicted are 18 or older.
