Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.


When Ian Fleming began writing Casino Royale, the first-ever 007 book, he wanted his hero to have “‘the dullest name’ he ever heard.” He thought he found it in James Bond, but it’s immediately apparent that there’s nothin dull about Fleming’s protagonist, fiction’s most famous superspy. Fleming drew from his own experiences working in British intelligence during World War II, creating a character with a very similar background to his own: an ex-military man known for his unconventional methods and posh social circles.


Casino Royale opens with Bond trying to bankrupt a wealthy Russian in a high-stakes card game with a beautiful woman on his arm. After carrying out his mission, 007 and his lover retreat to a quiet guesthouse, but things quickly get very complicated. Globe-trotting adventure, steamy romance, high-wire suspense, and shocking betrayals-it’s all there in Casino Royale. Pick up this thrilling spy story and discover the novel that birthed a worldwide franchise.
