Modesty Prevails

December 7, 2011

I’m back, and let’s continue where we left off with another Girls and Guns cover. Today, we have Modesty Blaise.

Impossible Virgin by Peter O'Donnell

I think the publishers chose a model with a striking likeness to the comic stip character. Whatever you may think of Modesty Blaise I feel you have to give credit to Peter O’Donnell. Not only did he create the character but he wrote the comic strip and numerous novels for decades.

Shall we turn to the back cover to see adventure Modesty is in for in this book? 

Back cover of Impossible Virgin by Peter O'Donnell

I can’t really tell you what the story is about based on the back cover blurb other than that it is set in Africa and has killers and gorillas. I feel the New York Times says it best though when they point out that this novel has it all, including medicine.
