Synopses & Reviews
The dark underworld of espionage and crime is lit up by the fatal charms of the gorgeous Modesty Blaise — high priestess of pulp crime and goddess of cult thrillers!
Modesty stumbles from a babysitting job into a mob war in The Reluctant Chaperon; shoots for the heart in The Greenwood Maid; a lovers betrayal puts both Modesty and Willie in the gladiatorial arena in Those About to Die; and in The Inca Trail, the duo save two children... and stop a revolution!
Featuring brand new story commentaries by Modesty creator Peter ODonnell, plus an exclusive introduction, this latest addition to the Modesty Blaise library is not to be missed!
In her first adventure for British Intelligence, Modesty and Willie Garvin are asked to protect 10 million pounds worth of diamonds as they journey from London to Cairo. The fiendishly evil Gabriel and the deadly Mrs. Fothergill are planning to steal the diamonds with the help of their mercenary army, and it's up to Modesty and Willie to escape capture, alert the British authorities, and as a last resort, do battle with Gabriel's gang of assassins. It's a thrilling ride as the two battle against impossible odds and a private army, and crisscross the European continent.
