Born in 1908 and educated at Eton and Sandhurst, Fleming joined Reuters News Agency in 1931. During WW2 he was Personal Assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence at the Admiralty, rising from the rank of Lieutenant to Commander. He built his house, Goldeneye (where he wrote his first Bond novel), in Jamaica when he became Foreign Manager of Kemsley Newspapers. By the time of his death in 1964, he had sold over forty million books, and the cult of Bond was internationally established.From AudioFile:
Five short stories find James Bond facing danger from a variety of sources, all of which he escapes through fast thinking and even faster action. The suave, cultured British accent of Rintoul captures both the sophistication and complexity of Bond's personality, in addition to defining his nationality. His dramatizations convey the moods, nuances and personal traits of all the characters, whether they're Canadian, American, Italian or British. By softening his voice, changing his pace and mellowing his vocal tones, Rintoul realistically performs female voices, as well. Rintoul's expert performance enlivens the story and helps guarantee that Fleming's writings will remain popular with listeners. P.A.J. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
