In 1964, James Bond's creator sealed a package containing a manuscript he thought no one would read until fifty years after his death. As an officer in Britain's Naval Intelligence during World War II, Ian Fleming had his own adventures to recount, and a conscience to unburden. His family ties and his career had taken him to the upper echelons of British and American society and espionage, the world of danger, betrayal, and deceit that he replicated in his famous James Bond novels. But this hidden manuscript contained a real spy story...with secrets that could explode history if revealed. In 2005, Amy Greenberg -- a young American academic with a glittering future -- is summoned to Ireland to claim the contents of her grandfather's safe deposit box, in which she finds a manuscript by Ian Fleming. The pages contain confidential information so potentially explosive that Amy soon discovers that people on both sides of the Atlantic are willing to kill to maintain its secrecy. In a race against time, Amy must unlock the manuscript's secrets and outwit unknown assailants who will do anything to bury the truth. In Secret Service is a historical mystery inside a contemporary thriller, a brand-new take on espionage suspense.
