Description
An international diamond-smuggling pipeline has opened up and the British Treasury wants to know who's controlling it. Impersonating a captured courier named Peter Franks, Bond infiltrates the criminal ring and finds an unlikely ally in Tiffany Case, a gorgeous American with a dark past. As the ring's stateside go-between, she may be just another link in the chain, but Tiffany is also Bond's best shot at finding the elusive figure at the head of the operation a syndicate boss known only by the initials ABC. But if Bond's cover gets blown, he ll find that the only thing harder than a diamond is surviving the payback of a pair of murderous henchmen. With a sparkling trail of smuggled gems as bait, Diamonds Are Forever leads Bond on a globe-hopping mission where deadly assassins lurk behind every corner.



About the Author
Ian Lancaster Fleming was a British journalist, naval intelligence officer, and creator of the fictional British spy, James Bond. Educated at Eton, Sandhurst, and at universities in Switzerland and Germany, Fleming's failure at the Foreign Office entrance exams led to brief careers with Reuters and as a stockbroker before he joined British Naval Intelligence in 1939. As personal assistant to the director, Fleming excelled, and his wartime service provided ample background for his later Bond stories.

Fleming's Bond novels and short-story collections are among the best-selling books of all time, and serve as the basis for the highly-successful movie franchise, which has starred such acclaimed actors as Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig as James Bond. In addition to the Bond series, Fleming wrote the children's classic Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang: The Magical Car. He died in 1964 of heart disease.
