       The incredible audacious life story of Michael Caborn-Waterfield, otherwise known as Dandy Kim. A series of entertaining adventures from wartime Bermuda to the post-war high societies of London, Manhattan, Havana, Tangiers, Florida and the Cote d’Azur. Some of his antics are truly mind-blowing and unbelievable.

       His list of friends was an eclectic Debrett’s mixture of the World’s most influential, rich, powerful and notorious icons.  His list of lovers is a bedroom guide to some of the most fascinating and beautiful women of all time.

       There were many heated discussions about him from Hollywood to the White House, from Interpol to No 10 Downing Street and Scotland Yard.

Kim had a happy knack of being in the right place at the wrong time.  The tales of his escapades and the intriguing characters he encountered, often in the most compromising situations, are wonderfully entertaining.  Some of his stories including the infamous ‘Jack Warner’ robbery are truly mind-blowing and unbelievable.”

       He was a rakish mix of Don Juan and Don Quixote, an incorrigible adventurer. For the second half of the 20th Century his debonair and devilish schemes and scrapes, captured headlines worldwide.

This book incorporates many controversial delicate subjects including the abdication of H.M. King Edward VIII and a possible alternate heir to the British Throne as well as questioning the involvement of Royalty in the gruesome murder of Sir Harry Oakes in the Bahamas. It moves on to Bermuda, Cuba and Florida detailing the connection between the mafia leader, Meyer Lansky and President Batista of Cuba.

This biography describes Kim’s involvement with both gun-running to Cuba for Batista and the smuggling of contraband from a nightclub/ski school in Tangier for Britain’s most notorious villains Billy Hill and the Kray twins. Kim was one of the founding members of ‘The Chelsea Set’ and the book will narrate some of the many bizarre stories involving politicians, aristocrats, actresses and gangsters. The book will move on to address the infamous robbery of the movie mogul, Jack Warner’s sumptuous villa on the French Riviera and Kim’s subsequent imprisonment in Paris. It will also reveal Kim’s zealous attraction to the opposite sex including his special relationship with the actress Diana Dors and describe his creation of the UK’s largest sex supermarket, Ann Summers.
