What a fascinating, well-written outline of Ian Fleming's hideaway, Goldeneye, in Jamaica where he invented James Bond after his war effort and entertained his family and a raft of friends. Informative and delightful with some excellent coloured photographs in the centre as well as black and white through the text.
