Modesty’s Yellowstone Booty

The dark underworld of espionage and crime is lit up once more by the fatal charms of the gorgeous Modesty Blaise — high priestess of pulp crime and goddess of cult thrillers.

Titan Books collects three more classic, hard-to-find stories in Modesty Blaise: Yellowstone Booty, on sale from 23 May 2008:

In Idaho George, Modesty is forced to escape from kidnappers when she is taken hostage along with a con artist, while in Yellowstone Booty she must thwart would-be thieves from stealing a stash of treasure from its rightful Native American owners; and in The Golden Frog, the fighting femme must journey to Cambodia, to rescue the master who trained her from the clutches of an evil regime.

Originally published in the Evening Standard in the 1960s, Peter O’Donnell’s Modesty Blaise provides crime thriller storylines with sass, wit and a touch of glamour, that has wooed celebrity fans such as Quentin Tarantino.
