Our Man In Kuwait is based around real events. Louise Burfitt-Dons was born and grew up in a country threatened with invasion by Iraq at any time. Her father was Preventative Health Officer for the Kuwait Oil Company. At the end of 1960 Ian Fleming visited the country and they became close friends.

Gordon Carlisle lives in the expat community of Ahmadi with little to worry about other than when to next don his dinner jacket.

When enlisted by an MI6 agent everything changes.
