Meyer was the film producer responsible for 'Dragnet', the most successful police series on US television, and had an interest in acquiring the early James Bond titles for the big screen.

b] Benson considers that Fleming's experiences as a journalist, and his eye for detail, add to the verisimilitude displayed in the novel. Just wanted to share my book review for the second James Bond novel, Live and Let Die which if I'm completely honest I didn't enjoy as the plot seems more dated than Casino Royale. Bond gets Leiter in a hospital and goes to the warehouse, where he outfights Big's man and figures out the smuggling scheme -- the coins are buried in the mud of aquariums filled with poisonous fish. Writing in The New York Times, Anthony Boucher—a critic described by Fleming's biographer, John Pearson, as "throughout an avid anti-Bond and an anti-Fleming man" [72]—thought that the "high-spots are all effectively described .Live and Let Die by Ian Fleming: First Edition 1954, Jonathan Cape, London, In very good condition with a second state dust jacket.

Beginning with the movie adaptation of Dr No in 1961, the series also sparked the longest-running film franchise in history. Solitaire is to discern whether or not he is lying, using a deck of playing cards to assist in her telepathic abilities.

Fleming builds the main character in Live and Let Die to make Bond come across as more human than in Casino Royale, becoming "a much warmer, more likeable man from the opening chapter", according to the novelist Raymond Benson, who between 1997 and 2002 wrote a series of Bond novels and short stories. From his Goldeneye home on Jamaica's northern shore, Fleming had visited Port Royal on the south of the island, which was once the home port of Sir Henry Morgan, all of which stimulated Fleming's interest. I knew that in the movies Leiter is badly attacked by a shark in Licence to Kill, but that’s like the 17th Bond film, so that I thought we would get more than 1.He thought it was the most exciting story he had read for years, but was unsure whether it was suitable for a film. On leaving, Bond kills several of Mr Big's men; Leiter is released with minimal physical harm by a gang member, sympathetic because of a shared appreciation of jazz. This is a great line from Fleming – ‘In front of his eyes, the rain came down in swift, slanting strokes – italic script across the unopened black cover that hid the secret hours that lay head.
