Part: 4

Summary (From the publisher):

In their latest adventure, Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin tangle with an old enemy - and a new one. Gabriel is back in business, as Willie Garvin finds when he saves a blind girl from hired killers on the Pearl Islands. But in London Modesty meets an even more powerful enemy, Simon Delicata, the man with a taste for death, a giant with such unnatural strength and invulnerability as to be a freak.

It is only when the link between Gabriel and Delicata becomes clear that Modesty and Willie realise what they are up against...and by then it is too late, for they are captives, deep in the Sahara, with the zombies of Mus.

Here the blind girl's uncanny gift is being used to unravel the secret, two thousand years old, of Domitian Mus, a tribune of Rome. A secret worth millions. Here Modesty faces Wenczel, the swordmaster, in a terrifying death duel. Here Willie Garvin faces his own moment of truth against the enemy he knows he cannot beat - Delicata. And here the struggle against seemingly impossible odds is fought out to its desperate conclusion.
