This is the first ever paperback edition of these stories, completing our acclaimed series of Modesty Blaise vels so there is a large audience waiting for this paperback. Publicity campaign is focussed on the complete re-issue of the Modesty vels in paperback, as these vels get remarkably wide review coverage, from sci-fi, crime and cult magazines to the literary pages. Review extracts attached. This is one of the great cult successes, and these two books build on the success of Modesty Blaise (0285637282) in the Waterstone's 99p Summer Reading promotion. This work presents a thrilling selection of short stories following Modesty Blaise, aided as always by Willie Garvin, from her early days running the Network to working with Sir Gerald Tarrant of British Intelligence. In the title story, Modesty faces the toughest assignment of her life, an attempt to rescue friends held by rebels in the jungle of Central America.
