I don't even know how many times I've read this, and despite its many flaws I have no objectivity when it comes to the Modesty Blaise books. I love them all with big pink sparkly hearts. ( )

The most lengthy, but not the most ambitious Modesty Blaise adventure. A nicely told story that jumps back and forth between present time and Modesty's Network days, but otherwise a standard tale of attempting to foil a Soviet plot to kill Western leaders en masse. ( )

Book description
There have been few other female action heroines like Modesty Blaise—a tough orphan who became the leader of the Network, a crime syndicate specializing in art theft and industrial espionage. This 10th book of her adventures begins with a flashback to the last days of the Network, when Modesty was about to retire, and describes the organization’s final, astonishing operation before it disbanded. This operation is echoed several years later when Modesty, with her peerless lieutenant Willie Garvin, finds herself drawn into conflict with the mysterious group known as the Watchmen, who have plans to kill Modesty in London and then destroy San Francisco’s Golden Gate bridge. Modesty and Willie find themselves prisoners on a drillship off the Ilhas Desertas and must use their resourcefulness to escape.
