I like these. Four stories in this book - The Reluctant Chaperone is first. It starts out very funny - Modesty disconcerted by a sweet 15-year-old with a belief in non-violence. Then things get complicated, with the Mafia moving in. Jane gets painfully exposed to real danger - not so funny now - and Modesty and Willie use what's at hand to solve the problems. Nice caper, with Jane's involvement adding an interesting touch. Then comes The Greenwood Maid - rather amusing, particularly since I'm a Robin Hood fan. And I like Will Stutely, too. It seems odd to me that Tuck didn't (apparently) know about his namesake, particularly with his appearance, but I guess Robin isn't (or wasn't) as ubiquitous as I think. The actual caper was pretty minor, and I guess the involvement of a villain added the necessary sparkle - doesn't seem to me that revenge for Ben added sparkle, but it might have added point. Then Those About To Die - Dom is amazingly stupid, considering what he picked those men for. He might have gotten the fights he wanted (though not those participants) by making it a prize tourney... whatever. And his ending was perfectly in character. Pretty artwork, story a little thin. And finally the title story, The Inca Trail. The notion of the race is neat and very Modesty and Willie - the only surprise, though, is that it took them so long to find trouble. And who owes who a bottle of champagne? Seems to me Willie made it in first. The assorted crushes are rather sweet and silly. I like Lancelot, though - getting him over the rope bridge is kind of amazing. Oh, and O'Donnell talks about the shot where Modesty is expressing exasperated patience - I like the one where Willie is, with her! The last line is a trifle confusing, though... ( )

A new collection of Modesty Blaise's exploits, including the title story, "The Reluctant Chaperone", "The Greenwood Maid", and "Those About to Die". I enjoyed "The Reluctant Chaperone" best; Modesty saves a Mafia killer from being rubbed out himself, and from then on her slightly weird ethics compel her to protect him from the follow-up pursuit. What's fine about this story is the added presence of a friend's 15-year old daughter, whom she is reluctantly chaperoning. Modesty doesn't do quite so well with youth as with trained killers, and it's amusing to see her occasionally put off balance by the situation. The rest are pretty standard adventures, but O'Donnell's bar is set so high this is in no way a complaint. The only complaint is about Romero's glamour girl art; it's not suited to Modesty Blaise or action scenes. There is also a preliminary interview with O'Donnell, and his preface to each story. ( )
