This paper will counterbalance the innumerable papers and articles that have been written about Fleming and James Bond. It does so by studying and analysing the character of Bond's superior, M. I have not come across a study relating to this very interesting and enigmatic person, though references can be found obliquely in studies of 007. The paper looks at key aspects which are important to M's character and leadership qualities, and how they are translated into his interactions with people, especially his subordinates. The following analysis is based solely on Ian Fleming's novels and have nothing whatsoever to do with the films on Bond. According to me, the less said about the films the better, especially when compared to the novels. M deserves a lot more analysis and study than has been accorded to him, and this paper is an attempt to see the public and private faces of the person. A familiarity with the Bond novels is required if this paper is to be of complete relevance to the reader. Fleming has created in M, a person who is the ultimate boss and the ultimate enigma.
