Product description

Product Description

So much has been written about James Bond it seems scarcely imaginable there is any more territory to mine. But in Diamonds In The Rough, Jeremy Duns shares the fruits of several years of research into unexplored aspects of Ian Fleming and his universe, from lost novels and screenplays to hidden inspirations.

This short ebook collects research previously published in The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph and elsewhere, revised, expanded and fully endnoted. It features six articles:

Gold Dust: The secret history of the lost Bond novel Per Fine Ounce
Uncut Gem: Uncovering the attempts to film The Diamond Smugglers
Commando Bond: James Bond's relationship to special forces history
Black Tie Spy: The MI6 operation that inspired the pretitles scene in Goldfinger
Smersh vs Smersh: Comparing Fleming's sinister organisation to the real thing
Bourne Yesterday: The roots of an unusual premise, from You Only Live Twice to wartime thrillers and beyond
