From the Ian Fleming Estate and Publications, “On September 15, 1957, Ian Fleming’s true account of diamond smuggling in Africa was serialized by the Sunday Times. The articles were then bound together and published as a book the following year. The million carat network…that was the name given by the men of the International Diamond Security Organization to a fantastic smuggling racket which spirited away ten million pounds worth of diamonds from Africa every year. That was the challenge which faced ex-MI-5 Chief, Sir Percy Sillitoe and his anti-smuggling squad. Master thriller-writer Ian Fleming tells the true story of the fight against the web of intrigue which covered two continents — and it is as exciting and gripping as any work of fiction."
