n this fourth James Bond adventure, 007 travels to the States to infiltrate a diamond smuggling mob. He gets as far as Las Vegas before trouble strikes, but he has an unlikely ally in the lovely form of Tiffany Case. Written while Fleming and the series were still fresh, "Diamonds" is a mostly enjoyable, escapist adventure, though its not as tightly plotted as some of his other books. And mobsters are hardly worthy villains for Bond. He needs world dominating megalomaniacs! There are a lot of details about food and drink and contrary to his Lothario rep, Bond only beds one girl.

Agree with the previous review. I loved Ian Fleming's description of America from Saratoga to Las Vegas. It's a country exuberant from winning WWII where anything's possible.

I'm reading Ian Fleming's Bond novels in the order in which he wrote them. This is the fourth one, and the best so far. It has many of the same elements as in the movie, minus the silly laser satellite. It's a good read.
