Three good stories. The front essay is a little odd - interesting, as it discusses all the places where circuses show up in the Modesty stories (strips and novels both), but as there's no circus in any of the stories in this book it seems an odd choice. The first story is Samantha and the Cherub - I absolutely love Sam. The way she handles her brother is great. Her determination to help and miscalculation are perfect, as is Willie's reaction afterward. She's wonderful and I'm glad to hear (from the foreword) that she will show up again later. The story itself is relatively lightweight - a hostage-taking that, fortunately for the good guys, goes seriously wrong just because Modesty and Willie get involved. Though there are several moments of real danger, to Sam and to Modesty and Willie. The second story is Milord, which is thoroughly nasty. Modesty and Willie run into two ends of a nasty variety of the vice trade - "blue" films made with kidnapped girls. There's nothing explicit shown, but it gets quite violent - once Modesty and Willie have defeated the villains and freed their victims, the latter eliminate the former. And Willie at the time and Modesty afterward agree it was appropriate. They're quite thoroughly nasty - but it seems a bit of a harsh judgement for Modesty and Willie. The third story is also pretty grim - a kidnapping, echoing another from the Network days, with the primary aim being not ransom but revenge against Modesty. Modesty and Willie use some serious tricks to put the villains off-guard, though they don't work _quite_ long enough, and Modesty ends up fighting for her life in a pretty close to hopeless situation. An unexpected ally keeps her alive and they all get away, though the experience permanently damages an old friendship. Three very strong stories, with relatively little of the usual funny bits. Modesty sails through relatively lightly - she's physically endangered several times, but that's nothing. Willie is put under real stress in all three stories - fear for Sam in the first, knocking Modesty out in the second because of what's been done to the women, and fear for Modesty - and leaving her behind, anyway - in the third. He needs a vacation. I hope there's a funny one coming up. ( )

Although this UK collection from 2012 has the same title and contains the same stories as the US counterpart from 2003, it is editorially different; among other things, the UK collection is printed from better originals and contains an exclusive article. These two collections should not be combined.
