Reviews

"Supremely enjoyable... Matthew Parker has created a completely new picture of Ian, Bond and the role of Jamaica in the making of the legend " -- John Pearson, author of THE LIFE OF IAN FLEMING
"The book that James Bond obsessives have been waiting for - a beautiful, brilliant history of Ian Fleming at home at Goldeneye, all of sun-drenched, gin-soaked, bed-hopping colonial Jamaica outside the window and 007 at the moment of his creation. This is the big bang of Bond books." -- Tony Parsons
"[Here are] the glowing sea, the teeming life beneath the waves, and the warm black nights, all of which made their way into the Bond novels... [But] Parker's highly readable account of Fleming's Jamaican life is less Thunderball and more Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea. Bond himself might have been a touch jealous." -- Sinclair McKay * Daily Telegraph *
"A superb account of Fleming's Jamaica... well-researched, excellently written... Without Jamaica, it is safe to say, there would have been no Agent 007." * Financial Times *
"Matthew Parker's brilliant book Goldeneye is indispensable for anyone interested in the inner life of the enigmatic Ian Fleming and the whole James Bond phenomenon he created." -- Nicholas Rankin * author of Ian Fleming's Commandos *
