The Night Of Morningstar - Peter O'Donnell

Probably the weakest of the Modesty Blaise books, it begins with a flashback to the time of The Network.

Willie has just finished testing a possible new recruit with physical skills approaching his own.

However, his state of mind is not up to the job - too arrogant, etc., according to the leadership group, so they give him the arse.

This rejection leads into the plot in the present, when a group including 'The Graduate' as he was nicknamed is involved in some political plotting and destruction - and after a couple of assassination attempts, Modesty, Willie, Steve and Dinah get involved. Tarrant himself is a target, and not to pleased with those plotting destruction in his country.

3.5 out of 5
