Review by

A trio of Modesty Blaise stories, with the best being the first, "A Present For The Princess". Willie Garvin is in a small and lawless Central American country trying to dig up a couple of nice emeralds to make earrings for Modesty, when an attack by brigands leaves him in an amnesiac state. He is taken in by a young Mestizo woman, who eventually falls in love with the strange Inglese man who only knows that he must somehow travel to England to find his Talisman, who will make everything right. This is a moving and unusual story that shows the depths of Willie's character even when he believes himself to be a brutal and violent man, and the strength of the bond between him and Modesty. The other two are fairly standard Modesty Blaise stories, but the final one, "The Grim Joker", is an unusual one in that it finds Modesty taking it upon herself to take down a murderous trio whose brutality offends her.
