The Moneypenny Diaries: Guardian Angel by Kate Westbrook lands on the |> SALE <| shelves in my shop.
John Murray, 2005, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: My heart breaks for James so begin the explosive, true, private diaries of Miss Jane Moneypenny, Personal Secretary to Secret Service chief M and colleague and confidante of James Bond.
From her colonial childhood in Kenya to her death in 1990, Jane Moneypenny led an extraordinary, clandestine life. But, contrary to popular belief, she was not simply a bystander while James Bond saw all the action. As her diaries make startlingly clear, Miss Moneypenny played a central role in the build up to the Cuban Missile Crisis and the threat of all-out nuclear war.
But a life of espionage has personal as well as political ramifications. For Jane Moneypenny, the price was high. Romantic relationships with outsiders were necessarily built on lies and you could not trust the motives of anyone. The impact of Jane Moneypenny s career on her family life was even more profound as, with access to classified information, she began to investigate the mysterious circumstances of her fathers presumed death while in service.
Guarding so many secrets and with no one to confide in, she found herself breaking the first rule of espionage. Unbeknown to anyone, she kept a diary charting her innermost thoughts and state secrets. It should never have been made public
