Abstract:

James Bond has graced our bookshelves and screens for more than fifty years. The martini-drinking, super-smooth character has become an icon and a national treasure. John Pearson assumed that the world's most famous spy was no more than a figment of Fleming's imagination. Then he began to have his doubts which were soon reaching such a pitch that the British secret service tried to warn him off. He finally became convinced that James Bond was not only real but alive and well in Bermuda. With candour and recall, Bond began to recount the story of his life to Pearson: his first assignment, his duel with the Secret Service, his women, cars and scandals. This revealing audiobook promises to show a side of Bond never seen before.
