Private Wars: A Queen and Country Novel by Greg Rucka
4.0 out of 5 stars more goodness from Rucka, 14 April 2014

Modesty Blase started as a comic strip before featuring in a series of books, this being the first. Written in the mid-sixties I remember discovering and devouring them in the late seventies. A film was also made, but it was awful and best avoided.

Modesty is a retired gang boss who, along with her right hand man Willie, is a little bored in retirement. She is convinced to assist HM Government in the protection of some diamonds and finds herself back in the game and up against some very nasty opponents.
