For the first time, followers of the James Bond adventures will see Agent 007 as he appears through the eyes of a beautiful woman, a woman who, in the midst of brutality and terror, recognizes Bond for what he is: a handsome and appealing killer. But only a killer can help her now.

Vivienne Michell is in trouble. Trying to escape her tangled past, she has run away to the American backwoods, winding up at the Dreamy Pines Motor Court. A far cry from the privileged world she was born to, the motel is also the destination of two hardened killers—the perverse Sol Horror and the deadly Sluggsy Morant. When a coolly charismatic Englishman turns up, Viv, in terrible danger, is not just hopeful but fascinated. Because he is James Bond, 007; the man she hopes will save her, the spy she hopes will love her.

This story of a night of horrifying fear in the Adirondacks bears the customary Fleming hallmark: what Max Lerner in the New York Post called “his enormous resourcefulness…his sure sense of what will fascinate and terrify the reader, his contriving of hairbreadth escapes.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “The Spy Who Loved Me stands alone as an enigma in the Bond series. It is a truly strange, experimental book for Ian Fleming, because the story is told in first person from the point of view of the heroine. The objective view of Bond here is very different and revealing.”

    Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill

  • “Fleming has set his stamp on the story of action and intrigue…his proper place in literature is with those demi-giants of an earlier day: Jules Verne, Rider Haggard, Conan Doyle.”

    Kingsley Amis 

  • “Ian Fleming keeps you riveted. His narrative pulls with the smooth power of Bond’s Thunderbird.”

    Sunday Telegraph (London)

    " I love the action and adventures in James Bond books. However, I am not impressed by how Ian Fleming portrayed the women in these books. The sad part is that I think he honestly thought that was how women thought. "

    " these donuts are delicious! this book is bad! most of it is about a young woman's depressing sex life and trip to find herself. then she almost gets raped. then bond shows up and does a lousy job of being the hero. then he finally saves the day and you find out that "all women love semi-rape". the end. i'd like to know how they could possibly have slept in a motel that was burning down. the whole thing made no sense. "
