Praise for Modesty Blaise:

“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

“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.”
‘The Observer’

“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’
