Diamonds Are Forever - book cover

‘Mister. Nothing is forever. Only death is permanent.’


‘M’'s story
- “And then you’re going to smuggle those diamonds into America. At least that’s the idea. What do you think of it?”

Max Leiter's story
- “You’re a damn fool to be operating alone if it’s anything to do with the Spangled boys. In fact, you’re such a bad risk I’m crazy even to be having lunch with you.”

Shady Tree's story
- “London tells me you have killed a man. I believe them. I can see you are capable of it. Would you like to do more work for us?”

James Bond's story
- “It looks as if we’ve got hold of the same tiger. But by different tails. It’s going to be fun pulling at them both at the same time.”

“There’s a low-slung car with a spotlight coming after us. Could be the Jag. About two blocks away now.”

“Matter of fact I’m almost married already. To a man. Name begins with M. I’d have to divorce him before I tried marrying a woman.”

Tiffany Case's story
- “Take me by the hand. Open the door and we will walk away together into the sunshine. Don’t worry. I will keep step with you. I have always been in step with the thought of you, but you didn’t come, and I have spent my life listening to a different drummer.”

Sereffino Spang's story
- “Well, Mister Whosis, this looks like a good year for something horrible to happen to you.”
