The dark underworld of espionage and crime is lit up by the
fatal charms of the gorgeous Modesty Blaise - high priestess
of pulp crime and goddess of cult thrillers. A twisted psychologist
puts Modesty through a gruelling ordeal, with murder in mind.
Can Modesty regain her self-control... or will she kill her
partner Willie Garvin?...
Puppet Master collects
together The Puppet Master, The Stone Age Caper
and With Love From Rufus strips.
with previous Modesty Blaise collections the writing
is sharp and the illustrations are fantastic. While some of
the writing comes across as a little outdated (attitudes to
women and foreigners for example) it has aged remarkably well,
when you consider when this was originally released.
fact it was ahead of it's time in some areas. The Stone
Age Caper shocked Evening Standard readers due
to the fact that Modesty bared her bosom to the world. It's
amazing that no one objected to the episodes before were the
aboriginal women can be seen as nature intended, but an illustration
of Modesty without her top caused quite a stir.
The Puppet Master, Modesty is captured and has her
mind erased in a simple act of revenge. The gang that kidnap
her plan to use her skills in combat for their own means.
With Love From Rufus, a number of burglaries in the
area are baffling the local police force. When someone breaks
into Modesty's property and cracks open her safe, he takes
nothing but leaves a bunch of flowers and a calling card.
Is this bizarre crime related to the spate of burglaries?
you've enjoyed the previous Modesty Blaise releases,
