Reviews

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 Dead White Female
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 * Crime Time *
The stories of Modesty are better than James Bond and funnier * Tribune *
