Summary

The fourth James Bond novel by Ian Fleming.

An international diamond-smuggling pipeline has opened up and the British Treasury wants to know who’s controlling it.

Impersonating a captured courier named Peter Franks, Bond infiltrates the criminal ring and finds an unlikely ally in Tiffany Case, a gorgeous American with a dark past. As the ring’s stateside go-between, she may be just another link in the chain, but Tiffany is also Bond’s best shot at finding the elusive figure at the head of the operation-a syndicate boss known only by the initials ‘ABC.’ But if Bond’s cover gets blown, he’ll find that the only thing harder than a diamond is surviving the payback of a pair of murderous henchmen.

With a sparkling trail of smuggled gems as bait, Diamonds Are Forever leads Bond on a globe-hopping mission where deadly assassins lurk behind every corner.

The waiter brought the Martinis, shaken and not stirred, as Bond had stipulated.
