Summary
For two months of every year, from 1946 to his death 18 years later, Ian Fleming lived at Goldeneye, the house he built on a point of high land overlooking a small white sand beach on Jamaica's stunning north coast. This book tells the story of Fleming's time on this extraordinary island and explores how its spirit - its exoticism, its unpredictable danger, its melancholy, its love of exaggeration and gothic melodrama - infused Fleming's novels and led to his greatest creation of all: James Bond
