Siren Song

Ian Fleming (Volume 2)

Quinn Fawcett

Forge Books

The world knows Ian Fleming best as the creator of that international sensation, James Bond, hero of countless novels and films. The real Ian Fleming was once an operative for British Naval Intelligence, ostensibly retired to a career in journalism after World War II. Rumors have long swirled that Fleming never completely left the spy game. . . .

Siren Song

At a posh New Year's Eve party in London, Fleming falls hard and fast for the glamorous Nora, who mixes brains and beauty in a way Fleming can barely resist. But it's winter in England, and he longs to return to his sanctuary on the island of Jamaica, and he has a plane to catch. On his way to the airport, Fleming is practically kidnapped by operatives of British Intelligence who offer him a scoop-the name of a powerful American businessman who is secretly a Communist and who may be passing US secrets to Soviet Russia. Suspecting that British Intelligence has its own private reasons for discrediting this man, and unwilling to be their patsy, Fleming will not look at the dossier.

When Nora unexpectedly turns up in Jamaica, Fleming anticipates a pleasant idyll-particularly when he discovers that this beautiful woman is a tough, adventurous, former war correspondent. Sex appeal, intelligence, and a shared passion for journalism-Fleming sees a new future unfolding before him. Even learning that Nora is investigating the American whose dossier Fleming refused does not dampen the former spy's ardor. The explosion of a bomb in Nora's hotel room provokes Fleming, who accompanies Nora to her home base of San Francisco.

There, Nora plans to expose the businessman's connections to Soviet Russia and his bigamous marriage. Fleming has his hands full keeping the lady safe-but begins to wonder just why the people trying to kill Nora are so persistent.

In a world of concealed motives, love is a most dangerous game. . . .

The jaunty notes that Noël Coward was coaxing from the piano on the dais seemed appropriate to a more intimate soiree, Ian Fleming judged with some amusement. But the formality of the evening's gathering had decidedly declined, and most of the prominent guests had vacated the hall and were by now snugly home to their lavish city estates or suburban manors. Fleming eyed the large Roman numerals of the clock above the hall's arched entryway. It was growing late.
He had enjoyed himself tonight, this which was to be his last night in his homeland, at least until
