Miss Moneypenny projects a cool, calm and collected image, the personification of chic sophistication and unflappable poise. She handles her cohort of 00 agents with good-humoured grace. She is professional and precise yet there is always the feeling that there is more to Jane than meets the eye. Indeed, it is time to move over James Bond! For now one of our sassiest and sexiest female icons, has been given a far larger role of her own. Jane is equally daring and dastardly, as this third and final book in The Moneypenny Diaries series reveals.

"Final Fling" combines the excitement of a cold war spy thriller with the mystery of a contemporary detective story. In the 1964/65 volume of her private diaries, Jane Moneypenny reports her demotion from the position of M’s secretary as the British Secret Intelligence Service is hit by a series of defection scandals. Facing considerable personal danger, she combines forces with 007 in a resolve to smoke out the mole she is convinced is buried deep in the heart of the Office. But, when Bond is sacked and M is forced into retirement, Moneypenny finds herself on her own…

Forty-two years later, Miss Moneypenny’s niece and heir, Kate Westbrook, starts to suspect that her aunt’s death was no accident. She is sure the clues to what happened lie in the search for the mole. As she pieces them together, however, she realizes that there are significant forces who are determined to prevent her finding the truth. From the glamour of 1960s Jamaica to the treacherous beaches of the Outer Hebrides, "Final Fling" reveals just how far people are prepared to go to defend – or betray – their beliefs, and relates the life and death, and surprising final love, of the world’s most famous fictional secretary.
