Fleming’s novel - Doctor No - 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.

James Bond is sent to Jamaica to investigate the sudden disappearance of the island’s Governor and his assistant. When he arrives, 007 begins to suspect that the Governor’s absence is in some way linked to Dr No, the reclusive owner of a remote island which lies between Cuba and Jamaica. There have been several strange deaths on this island, which the local people blame on a mysterious and terrifying ‘dragon’. Bond decides to pay a secret visit to the island, but he is not the only person to land there…
