Publisher Comments:

Modesty Blaise's friend Novak died trying to preserve his discovery of the Impossible Virgin, a secret that meant enormous wealth. But right at the last moment, he babbled. When Modesty makes a forced landing in Central Africa, she meets the man who possesses Novikov's secret without knowing it—Giles Pennyfeather, the guileless and blundering young doctor with a gift for healing. In saving Giles from Brunel, a dangerous killer, she buys yet another ticket to danger, for Brunel is determined to have the secret. Modesty and her lieutenant, Willie Garvin, take on Brunel and his partners in a fierce and devious battle, where Modesty is brought to the most shattering reverse she has ever suffered. How she fights back, and at last learns the truth of the Impossible Virgin and her ferocious guardians, brings this fifth tale in the saga of Modesty Blaise to an astonishing climax.

Synopsis:

Modesty Blaise. Set in Africa, this fifth book of her ever-popular adventures is a vintage treat for all her fans.

Another rip-roaring, sexy, thrill ride Modest Blaise adventure! Modesty makes an unexpected landing in Africa, befriends an eccentric, good hearted doctor, and runs into some throughly unpleasant, gold hunting thugs. Follow the escapades of Modesty and her trusty, knife wielding parter Willie Gavin as they battle evil, rescue an albino and journey to. . .The Impossible Virgin! Seriously, these books are really good thrillers-smart, sharp, exciting. Blaise has a great deal more character, personality, and style than Mr. Bond, to whom she is often compared. Check out the comic book series as well.
