A Real-Life Assignment Worthy Of An Ian Fleming Hero
Smuggled diamonds worth 30 million dollars yearly flowed from the mines in Africa to shadowy destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Moscow. International racketeers, their resourcefulness sharpened by the huge stakes, were able to outwit the regular police and so the Diamond Corporation decided on a bold step: to create a private intelligence army. The true story of how a master spy-chaser was brought to Africa to dry up the international illicit diamond pipelines at their source is told her by Ian Fleming with the talent for realism that has won him a reputation without parallel as a suspense writer.
One of two non-fiction books by Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond. Illustrated with photos.
