As Mr. Fleming knew, sex is an integral part of spycraft since time immemorial. The introduction of photography, sound recording and digital technologies have served to increase the size and quality of the take. The late US Attorney and later mob lawyer Roy Cohn was one big proponent.


The late Ms. Deborah Jeane Palfrey, called by the news media the DC Madam, had a little black book with 10,000 phone numbers. Her clients included Sen. David Vitter, an Assistant Secretary of State, Pentagon officials and defense contractors. A little sexual blackmail can go far when billions are at stake. After her “suicide” by hanging, the book and its contents languish in federal legal limbo.


The late Mr. Jeffrey Epstein, per then Labor Secretary Alexander Costa, was similarly connected. “Belonged to intelligence” is how the then-US Attorney Costa described what he saw when arranging a most lenient sentence for the child sexual predator he had helped prosecute.
