Reviews

These books are the finest escapist thrillers ever written
*The Times*

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*

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*

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*
