"These books are the finest escapist thrillers ever written."  —The Times

Library Journal
Published in 1996 and 1969, respectively, these are two outings in the author's popular Modesty Blaise adventures. Taste for Deathis a full-length novel, while Cobra Trapcollects five Blaise shorts.

I've been a fan of Modesty Blaise for more than 20 years. Read all her books several times. And this is the best of them. Nonstop adventure and excitment. Very good attention to detail. Villans that make your blood run cold. This is as good as it gets.
