* THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING MODESTY BLAISE SERIES *

'The finest escapist thrillers ever written' THE TIMES

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

Karz, a modern-day Genghis Khan, is assembling an army of mercenaries in a hidden valley in the Hindu Kush Mountains. His objective: the invasion and occupation of oil-rich Kuwait. But he lacks a couple of top lieutenants, and his gaze falls on Modesty Blaise and her loyal companion Willie Garvin, even though he knows they are not for hire.

Meanwhile, Sir Gerald Tarrant, who runs a secret service organisation under the British government, has noticed that many mercenaries are being recruited by some unknown employer and disappearing. This worries Sir Gerald, and he asks Modesty and Willie to investigate.

When Karz kidnaps Lucille (a child dear to Modesty and Willie), and commands them to report for duty, the adventurers have no choice. They must travel to the isolated valley and find a way to prevent an invasion that will change the world.

«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 Book Review

«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»

Crime Time

«These books are the finest escapist thrillers ever written»
