Thrilling Cities, Paperback

Thrilling Cities Paperback



On November 2nd armed with a sheaf of visas suitcase ...and my typewriter, I left humdrum London for the thrilling cities of the world...In 1959, Ian Fleming, the creator of "James Bond", was commissioned by the "Sunday Times" to explore fourteen of the world's most exotic cities.

Fleming saw it all with a thriller writer's eye. From Hong Kong to Honolulu, New York to Naples, he left the bright main streets for the back alleys, abandoning tourist sites in favour of underground haunts, and mingling with celebrities, gangsters and geishas.

The result is a series of vivid snapshots of a mysterious, vanished world.
