Another enthralling adventure, only slightly marred by the over-the-top implausibility of the plot and the bad guys' scheme. Still, an exciting story which further illuminates Modesty's weakness for lost puppies, especially nice ones with talent, as Modesty saves, beds and nurtures, and finally avenges an immensely talented artist from the baddies who have kidnaped him.
