Details

Continuing the only complete collection of Modesty adventures! Two additional adventures are "The Aristo," which finds Modesty crashing her light plane to infiltrate a seagoing ransom scheme, and "Guido the Jinx," the return of a hapless but sympathetic friend of Modesty's who hires her and Willie as extras in a B-film, "Day of the Dinosaur," as primeval cave dwellers!

And in "The Killing Distance," a retired Russian agent, now a millionaire (with a little help from the C.I.A.) has decided to kill Sir Gerald Tarrant...Modesty's mentor and friend, as well as head of MI-6.

Rick Norwood (Comics Revue) comes on board to introduce each episode with insightful observations. For instance "Modesty and Willie respected human life. Most action heroes don't...They do kill, but only when the threat is immediate and no other response is possible...One of the many reasons I enjoy the fiction of Peter O'Donnell is that he took moral considerations seriously."

Full of classic action and adventure and dripping with 60's chic. "I fell in love with Peter O'Donnell's astonishing heroine when I was 12."--Neil Gaiman (creator of Sandman)

"The stories are always intriguing, and Blaise and right hand man Willie Garvin have a relationship that's just plain fun to read about."--Ain't It Cool News
