Ian Fleming (1908-1964), creator of the world's best-known secret agent, is the author of fourteen James Bond books. Born in London in 1908 and educated at Eton and Sandhurst, he became the Reuters Moscow correspondent in 1929. In the spring of 1939, Fleming went back to Moscow as a special correspondent for the London Times. In June of that same year, he joined Naval Intelligence and served throughout World War II, finally earning the rank of Commander, RNVSR (Sp.). Much of the James Bond material was drawn directly from Fleming's experiences as an intelligence officer. Later, Fleming became a consultant on foreign affairs for the London Sunday Times, by which time he had become far better known as the creator of James Bond.

I found the plot to be a little bit implausible, a little too much planning and effort on the part of the Russians to get Bond for what would probably be, in reality, a minor payoff. I also felt like there was a lot of buildup of the Kerim character for not much payoff at the end of the book. Without giving it away - it's the kind of thing that works if this were published as a serial, but less satisfying in a novel. The treatment of the Russians is interesting. They are ruthless and efficient, but you also get glimpses of a human side.
