Perhaps if Ian Fleming and Auberon Waugh had written a book together, it might have read a bit like The Sixth Column - not a bad, light read but Peter Fleming is a much better at travel writing - News from Tartary still one of my favourites. The Sixth Column is good reading when slightly distracted.
