Title:The Diamond Smugglers
Author:Fleming, Ian
Published:   1957
Publisher:Jonathan Cape
Tags:crime, non-fiction
Description:A major campaign against the greatest smuggling racket in the world—the smuggling of diamonds from Africa, to the tune of some ten million pounds a year—has just been completed. It took three years. Paris was involved and Antwerp, Beirut, Freetown, Johannesburg—and Moscow. How this underground battle was waged is the greatest spy story since the war.

All the facts have come into the hands of Ian Fleming, who has been in Africa with the secret agent chiefly responsible for penetrating the international smuggling network, and has written his true story. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Image

Ian Lancaster Fleming (28 May 1908 – 12 August 1964) was an English author, journalist and naval intelligence officer, best known for his James Bond series of spy novels. Fleming came from a wealthy family connected to the merchant bank Robert Fleming & Co., and his father was the Member of Parliament for Henley from 1910 until his death on the Western Front in 1917. Educated at Eton, Sandhurst and, briefly, the universities of Munich and Geneva, Fleming moved through several jobs before he started writing.
