5.0 out of 5 stars "All right, Princess, let's go an' win it." 28 Jun 2005
Willie Garvin, Modesty's loyal partner, makes the above statement just as he and Modesty are about to set out on what becomes an incredibly harrowing and dangerous caper. Willie makes this statement to Modesty (who he calls "Princess") at a time when he and Modesty have already been dealt a severe blow - they have just discovered that they are not only fighting for themselves and the need to save the world, but must fight for the life of an innocent child who is dear to them. This makes it of utmost importance that they have to defeat the bad guys.
"Sabre-Tooth" is the second book in the Modesty Blaise series of books and was written by Peter O'Donnell in 1966. It is a direct sequel to the first book, with Sir Gerald Tarrant of the British Foreign Service sending Modesty and Willie out on another dangerous mission.
As usual for a Modesty Blaise adventure the bad guys are bigger than life and extremely nasty. Karz, the huge Mongol who has assembled an army of mercenaries in northern Afghanistan, is totally ruthless, but still not the most fascinating of the villains.
That honor must go to "The Twins", a grotesque pair of killers who hate each other's guts but must endure each other's constant proximity to avoid insanity. This is because The Twins were once Siamese twins, and even though they were successfully separated, the separation was not viable due to a mutual psychological dependency. Now The Twins wear a harness that joins them at the shoulders, and they spend every minute of their lives linked together.
The high point of "Sabre-Tooth" is the fight to the death between Modesty and The Twins. How can Modesty, completely unarmed, survive in a fight against a four-legged, four-armed, two-headed killing machine?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hero That Out Bonded Bond 30 Jun 2014
O'Donnell's fabulous Blaise franchise is, to quote the late great Kingsley Amis, "endlessly fascinating and features the greatest partnership in crime fiction since Homes & Watson" and this, the second novel in this high quality series is also the best.
The plot features a plan to invade Kuwait on September 11th! How prolific is that?
O'Donnell's clairvoyance skills aside, this is the tight, taunt kick ass thriller that firmly established Blaise as the rightful successor to Bond.
Blaise pulls no punches with her efforts to thwart the plan and readers are in for a treat as our cool, sophisticated heroine drop kicks her way through the most dastardly set of villains since Sax Rohmer gave us Fu Manchu.
Brilliant stuff and so well written
