Fleming’s novel - Diamonds are forever - was about a handsome British secret agent called James Bond. Bond was a spy who loved women, fast cars, and good food and drink. He was well- paid because his job was very dangerous. James Bond had a ‘Licence to Kill’. Sometimes he was told to kill his enemies.

Diamonds are Forever takes place in the 1950s. At this time, diamond smuggling was just beginning to be a big problem in the West African country of Sierra Leone. Sierra Leone is on the Atlantic coast and borders the countries of Guinea and Liberia. Together with coffee and cocoa, diamonds are one of the country’s main exports to other countries. Bond is sent to investigate a dangerous diamond-smuggling gang run by the American mafia. The story begins in Africa, moves to London and ends in Las Vegas. There Bond and the beautiful Tiffany Case must escape the fury of the gang’s leaders, the evil Spang brothers.
