Ranging from Switzerland to Jamaica, and peopled with luminaries such as Winston Churchill and John F Kennedy, the life of Ian Fleming is as dramatic as that of his creation James Bond. Drawing on direct access to Fleming's family and friends, the acclaimed biographer Andrew Lycett charts his schooling at Eton, his secret work in Naval Intelligence during the Second World War, and his brilliant career as a novelist to produce a portrait of the enigmatic man who invented 007.
