Summary (From the publisher):

When the first threats arrive they are naturally thought to be a hoax, the work of a crank.

But when a hundred and twenty people have been threatened with death... when a few have lived because they paid the price demanded... when the rest have died, most of them from various natural causes or by genuine accident... then there is no further talk of a hoax.

By what unimaginable means do the killers cause a man to die by lightning? By swallowing a fishbone in a restaurant? By a sudden coronary? By accidentally electrocuting himself?

Why have a few, but only a few, been killed by violence?

How are the ransoms collected without trace from under the sea?

These are the questions Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin must unravel when their friend, Vaubois, head of the Deuxieme Bureau, is warned for death. The task plunges them into strange currents of mystery and sets them in startling conflict against lethal opponents -

  • Lucifer, who rules in a world of fantasy.
  • Seff, the unspeakable puppeteer.
  • Jack Wish, the executioner.
Here, in the third Modesty Blaise novel, Peter O'Donnell unfolds a story that treads amazing new paths in the saga of Modesty and her remarkable henchman, Willie Garvin. The scene moves from London to Paris and from Yugoslavia to the Philippines, where it reaches a tremendous climax.
