During the turbulent period between the rise of the Nazis in Germany and the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy, international espionage did not occupy the same public attention it has today. Under this media obscurantism, a Latin American diplomat of the international jet-set inspired Ian Fleming to create James Bond. Few knew then that the real spy behind the 007 narrative was the famous polo player who inspired this engaging cinematic novel that runs like a film noir thriller from the occupation of France by the Nazis to the failed US invasion of Cuba in the Bay of Pigs. "A fascinating fictional account that changes the perception of the role of Hispanic America in the crucial history of the Cold War."show more
