All four are about the adventures of Philip McAlpine whom critic Anthony Boucher described as an agent who smokes hashish, leads a highly active sex life, kills vividly, uses (or even coins) the latest London slang and still seems a perfectly real (and even oddly likeable) young man rather than a reflected Bond image. A film version of The Dolly Dolly Spy with David Hemmings playing McAlpine was scheduled to go into production but was never made. Diment disappeared from public view after his last novel, adding to his cult figure status among fans of 1960s spy novels. According to The Observer, by 1975 Diment was living in Zurich, shunning publicity, and had no plans to write further novels.' [Wiki] ***'The sex is highly charged. The birds are beautiful and highly lethal (but naturally). And McAlpine is on peak form.' [Sunday Mirror] Review quote from back wrapper. ***First impression of the first paperback edition of this 1960s spy novel, with classic 60s cover art. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Seller Inventory # PB103
