With a mind as sharp as her fashion sense and fighting skills worthy of any she-samurai, Modesty Blaise - cult creation of best-selling author Peter O'Donnell - is back in another classic collector's edition from Titan!
In three thrilling, nerve-shredding stories - Top Traitor, The Vikings and The Head Girls - Modesty must rip deeply through her own organisation to uncover a spy, do battle with homicidal Norsemen and cross claws with a pride of kittens-turned-feral cats.
All this action jammed into one volcanic volume! Collecting the rare and classic newspaper strips from The Evening Standard, this volume also includes an exclusive, never-before-seen interview with Peter O'Donnell.

Review by jjmcgaffey
I like the title story - especially when the wrong one is being questioned and Fraser's reaction. I wish he'd shown up again later - as far as I can recall, he doesn't, though. Another two-part story - first the data then the rescue, which gets very exciting. Bad idea to use a boar-spear from horseback anyway, and against an intelligent foe - ah well, he was no loss. The second story is The Vikings - I liked Olaf eventually. The glimpse into Network operations was good too. Magnus is too stupid to be much fun - again, fighting out of his weight. Not bad, overall - and a lovely funny bit at the end. The Head Girls is neat - it's a very Gabriel concept right from the start (though I don't see why he sent the spies at all). And he did in fact account for everything but luck in his plans. Pity for him they have it.... Very similar to their previous encounter, in results for him, anyway. Very nice overall, but the Top Traitor story is really good - though I like the first part better than the action bit, it's good but too ordinary (for Modesty and Willie, at least).
