My African military friends

It`s a bit of a minefield out there.

It doesn`t matter any more.

Things are out of my hands.

We reach the end, Mr Bond.

Spare me the unpleasantries.

carved Korea in two.

And then you arrive.

A British spy. An assassin.

And now the hardliners have their proof

we cannot trust the West.


You took away my son.

Your firing squad

should have done the job for me.

I hoped a Western education would help

him become a bridge between our worlds.

But all it did was to corrupt him.

Let`s get this over with, shall we?

My son had an ally in the West.

For the last time, who was it?

Who made him betray

The same person who betrayed me.

Turn around!

Start walking.

Keep walking, please.

Keep moving.


I`m being traded.

Your time will come.

Not as soon as yours.

Keep walking, please.

You`d think he was some kind of a hero.

OK, hold him tight.

- Watch his legs now.

No biological agents

in the prelim scan. He`s clean.

Pulse 72.

Blood pressure 120 over 80.

Indications of neurotoxins, histamine,

serotonin, enzyme inhibitors.

Scorpion venom.

Also traces of a venom antiserum.

They`d sting him,

then administer the antidote.

Yet his internal organs seem unaffected.

Liver not too good.

It`s definitely him, then.


Welcome back.

Such hospitality.

You don`t seem too pleased to see me.

If I`d had my way,

you`d still be in North Korea.

Your freedom came at too high a price.


He tried to blow up a summit

between South Korea and China.

Took out three Chinese agents

before he was caught.

And now he`s free.

I never asked to be traded.

- I`d rather die in prison than let him loose.

Ian Fleming

Ian Lancaster Fleming (28 May 1908 – 12 August 1964) was an English author, journalist and naval intelligence officer who is best known for his James Bond series of spy novels. Fleming came from a wealthy family connected to the merchant bank Robert Fleming & Co., and his father was the Member of Parliament for Henley from 1910 until his death on the Western Front in 1917. Educated at Eton, Sandhurst and, briefly, the universities of Munich and Geneva, Fleming moved through several jobs before he started writing. While working for Britain's Naval Intelligence Division during the Second World War, Fleming was involved in planning Operation Goldeneye and in the planning and oversight of two intelligence units, 30 Assault Unit and T-Force. His wartime service and his career as a journalist provided much of the background, detail and depth of the James Bond novels. Fleming wrote his first Bond novel, Casino Royale, in 1952. It was a success, with three print runs being commissioned to cope with the demand. Eleven Bond novels and two collections of short stories followed between 1953 and 1966. The novels revolved around James Bond, an officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6. Bond was also known by his code number, 007, and was a commander in the Royal Naval Reserve. The Bond stories rank among the best-selling series of fictional books of all time, having sold over 100 million copies worldwide. Fleming also wrote the children's story Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang and two works of non-fiction. In 2008, The Times ranked Fleming 14th on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". Fleming was married to Ann Charteris, who was divorced from the second Viscount Rothermere because of her affair with the author. Fleming and Charteris had a son, Caspar. Fleming was a heavy smoker and drinker for most of his life and succumbed to heart disease in 1964 at the age of 56. Two of his James Bond books were published posthumously; other writers have since produced Bond novels. Fleming's creation has appeared in film twenty-six times, portrayed by seven actors. more…
