Modesty Blaise started as a 1960s comic strip and was later developed into novels and three films. Modesty Blaise is a wealthy, buxom, curvaceous young woman of a mysterious background who, although at times a criminal, also works for the British Secret Service under instructions from Sir Gerald Tarrant, the head of the British Secret Service.
In this story, which is based on the first novel, a British agent is found dead under suspicious circumstances. Rumours are circulating of a plot to steal a huge consignment of diamonds belonging to a Middle Eastern Sheikh. The diamonds are part of a deal to secure oil for Britain. Sir Gerald Tarrant needs some specialist help to prevent the plot being carried out. He decides to ‘set a thief to catch a thief’ and persuades former criminal Modesty Blaise (played by an actress with the sexiest voice on radio) to come out of retirement, along with her right-hand man Willie Garvin.
