Novel biography

Mary Trueblood was a former Chief Officer WRNS and secretary to John Strangways, the head of the British Secret Service's Caribbean station based in Jamaica. After assassinating Strangways for prying into Dr. Julius No's business, his killers proceed to the station and murder Trueblood during her scheduled contact with London.

Both she and Strangways are placed in a weighted coffin and dumped in the Mona Reservoir; sinking into a fifty-fathom grave as the station and its records burn to the ground. After an official investigation is launched into their disappearance, the head of the Secret Service M, noting her good looks, floats the idea that they might have run off together.
