'The finest escapist thrillers ever written' THE TIMES

'Before Buffy, before Charlie's Angels, before Purdy and Emma Peel, there was Modesty Blaise' OBSERVER

When Modesty Blaise and her loyal lieutenant Willie Garvin try to take revenge on a man who mistreated their close friend, Maude Tiller, they never imagined what events would unfold. They discover that another companion, Danny, has not been dead for two years, as they had thought, but instead has been taken to Limbo, a plantation in the jungles of Guatemala. There slaves are tormented by the despotic Mistress of Limbo, aided by her ferocious armed guards.

Modesty allows herself to be captured in order to infiltrate Limbo, but places herself in great danger. For the plantation is to be shut down, and the slaves destroyed. Modesty must incite revolt to save both herself, and the captives, and hope that Willie brings help in time...

Anmeldelser

«These books are the finest escapist thrillers ever written»

The Times

«In the beginning there was Modesty. Cooler than the pretentious James Bond, tougher than the brain-dead Mike Hammer»

Lauren Henderson, author of <i>Dead White Female</i>

«Before Buffy, before Charlie's Angels, before Purdy and Emma Peel there was Modesty Blaise. For almost 40 years, Peter O'Donnell's iconic heroine drop-kicked her way through a swath of villains and into a unique place in popular culture»

Observer

«One of the great partnerships in fiction, bearing comparison with that of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson»

Kingsley Amis

«O'Donnell is one of those rare popular writers, like Josephine Tey or P.G. Wodehouse, who inspire not just fandom but love»

New York Times

«Modesty Blaise was the comic-strip criminal genius, turned occasional secret service operative, who managed to combine timeless beauty and elegance with the ability to break every bone in your body... there's never been a better time to become acquainted»

The Crack

«The continuing renaissance of the immortal heroine: thrilling, humorous and timeless adventures, the Modesty Blaise series are seminal British crime novels»

«The stories of Modesty are better than James Bond and funnier»
