Review by jjmcgaffey
Good stories in this one. In the first, title, story, Modesty and Willie get conned very neatly. We get to see Frasier, Modesty in a fight to the death, and some lovely cons on their part as well. The second, Eve and Adam, is also neat - two completely unrelated setups that intersect on Modesty and Willie. The survival bit is neat - and it's probably easier for the two of them than for anyone else! And then a chance rescue and some neat work against high odds. And the last story, Brethren of Blaise, is weird - the hit is positively funny, and really stupid on the villains' part. Though it's not actually what brings them in to the main event. The villains are in general pretty clumsy and stupid, which is good given the handicaps Modesty and Willie are working under. And Andy's trick was cute, but it's a good thing he played it on them instead of the villains first…Overall - really good. And Willie has a lovely last line - ''Maybe next time I'll save a _wicked_ damsel…''
