BBC 4 Radio is doing an audio adaptation of the Modesty Blaise spy character:
Modesty Blaise is glamorous, intelligent, rich and very, very cool.
She's been called the female James Bond but she's much more interesting
Modesty started life in 1963 as a strip cartoon in the London
Evening Standard. The first of the novels followed three years later.
Daphne Alexander plays Modesty in Radio 4's adaptation of A Taste for Death.
