Description


Dr. No by Ian Fleming inspired the very first film featuring James Bond, starring Sean Connery in 1962, helping to kick off the global saturation of this legendary fictional spy as an icon of British cool.

Dr Julius No is a man with a mysterious past.

Nobody knows what secrets are hidden on his Caribbean island, and all those who have attempted to investigate further have disappeared.

When two British agents go missing in Jamaica, Bond is sent to investigate. Battling the Doctor’s twin obsessions with power and pain, he uncovers the true nature of his opponent’s covert operation—but he must undergo a deadly assault course before he can destroy the Doctor’s plans once and for all.


About the Author


Ian Lancaster Fleming was born in London in 1908. His first job was at Reuters news agency, after which he worked briefly as a stockbroker before working in Naval Intelligence during World War Two. His first novel, Casino Royale, was published in 1953 and was an instant success. Fleming went on to write thirteen other Bond books as well as two works of non-fiction and the children's classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The Bond books have earned praise from figures such as Raymond Chandler, who called Fleming 'the most forceful and driving writer of thrillers in England' and President Kennedy, who named From Russia with Love as one of his favorite books. The books inspired a hugely successful series of film adaptations which began in 1961 with the release of Dr No.He was married to Ann O'Neill with whom he had a son, Caspar. He died in 1964.
