Dr No




There is only one Bond. Enjoy these intoxicating spy novels in stylish Vintage Classics editions.

‘The first shot had been fired. There would be others. And whose finger was on the trigger? Who had got him so accurately in their sights?’

Dr Julius No is a deformed mine-owner with a sadistic streak and a mysterious past. Nobody knows what secrets are hidden on his Jamaican island, and all those who have attempted to investigate further have disappeared.

The test? If he makes it through Dr No's jungle defences, 007 must steel himself against the Doctor's twisted twin obsessions with power and pain and survive a deadly assault course, carefully constructed to inflict maximum agony.

Crab Key island is bleak, desolate and remote. So why is Dr No defending it so ruthlessly? Only Bond can uncover the truth, in Fleming’s sixth 007 adventure.

About the Author

Ian Fleming

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 the Second World War. His first novel, Casino Royale, was published in 1953 and was an instant success. Fleming went on to write twelve other Bond books as well as two works of non-fiction and the children’s classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The Bond books have sold over sixty million copies and 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 favourite books. The books inspired a hugely successful series of film adaptations which began in 1961 with the release of Dr No, starring Sean Connery as 007. Fleming was married to Anne Rothermere with whom he had a son, Caspar. He died in 1964.
