Over at CommanderBond.net our good friend Charles Helfenstein wrote up a really good and interesting piece on a project Fleming and Terence Young (director of Dr. No, From Russia with Love and Thunderball) collaborated on in Fleming’s final days called The Poppy Is Also A Flower.
While we don’t know much about the story of Devil May Care, we do know it involves the heroin trade and poppies in some form as seen from the cover of the UK jacket. Poppies also showed up in Fleming’s Goldfinger in the first chapter. Couple of people have said that Devil May Care is a Bond novel that Fleming may have written had he had lived a little longer. The subject matter certainly is.
