Fleming knew Ivar Bryce from his schooldays and Bryce and his wife, heiress Josephine Hartford, bought the colonial style mansion on Long Island in 1936. Like Fleming, Bryce worked in intelligence during the Second World War, and it was he who introduced Fleming to Jamaica.
“Bryce even had the fourth book in the series, Diamonds Are Forever, dedicated to him.”
