was once considered
the heir to Ian Fleming
with his wildly successful series of novels (The Dolly Dolly Spy
, The Great Spy Race
, The Bang Bang Birds
, Think, Inc.
) about the spy Philip McAlpine. Diment, writing in the swinging ‘60s and ‘70s, was known for his debonair lifestyle and casual flirtation with drugs
. He had it all: success, wealth, sex. Then he disappeared
It appears Diment may have confused his novels for real life. He is purported to have taken part in a ‘currency swindle
’ related to the filming of an adaption of his first book, The Dolly Dolly Spy. No one knows for sure, but there are assertions that Diment is still alive and simply choosing to remain out of the spotlight. He has not published anything (nor been seen in public) since 1971—at least, not under the name Adam Diment.
