The first of many highly successful James Bond novels, Casino Royale was published in 1953. The book was a huge success and would later be made into a film in 1967 as a spy comedy starring Peter Sellers, Ursala Andress and David Niven. Later, in 2006, it was remade into a true spy thriller starring Daniel Craig, Dame Judi Dench, Eva Green and Mads Mikkelsen. The story takes place at the Casino Royale in Montenegro, where Bond must defeat a private banker to terrorists.
Fairless developed spinal problems in her teens which were to continually plague her the remainder of her altogether short life. She completed hospital training as a child's nurse, but her ailment precluded her ability to carry on such activities and she turned to writing. Even then she was often forced to dictate her work. After a short time in London, she moved to Sussex. Her most successful work, The Roadmender (1902), was completed on her death bed and brought her immense popularity, albeit posthumously. Her other well-known works include The Gray Brethren (1905) and The Gathering of Brother Hilarius (1905).
