A Taste for Death

This work is re-issued along with the first paperback edition of "Cobra Trap", completing our acclaimed series of "12 Modesty Blaise" novels. Retaining the original cover art, it is ideal for the collector's market. Publicity campaign is focussed on the complete re-issue of the "Modesty" novels, as these novels get remarkably wide review coverage, from sci-fi, crime and cult magazines to the literary pages. Review extracts attached. This is one of the great cult successes, and these two books build on the success of "Modesty Blaise" (0285637282) in Waterstone's 99p promotion. The rugged team of Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin take on impossible odds, pitted against Simon Delicta, the man with a taste for death, and Swordmaster Wenczel in a duel to the death. As the adventure unfolds, travelling from London to Panama before reaching the depths of the Sahara desert, the pair will need all their killing skills to survive.

About the Author

Peter O'Donnell began his career working on pre-World War Two comic strips. During the 1950's he became involved with strip cartoons and created the revolutionary series Modesty Blaise, which would be syndicated in more than 42 countries. The strip led to a series of bestselling novels, all published by Souvenir Press: Modesty Blaise, Sabre Tooth, I, Lucifer, The Impossible Virgin, Pieces of Modesty, A Taste for Death, The Silver Mistress, Dragon's Claw, The Xanadu Talisman, The Night of the Morningstar, Dead Man's Handle and his final collection of stories about Modesty, Cobra Trap.


"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." "The Observer"" "These books are the finest escapist thrillers ever written." "The Times""
