Book 1 for 2011

I, Lucifer by Peter O'Donnell. 287 pages.

Third novel in the Modesty Blaise series. This time, Modesty and Willie Garvin are up against a blackmail ring with a nasty twist and need all their considerable skills to keep themselves and their friends alive.

Like the previous books in the series, an enjoyable adventure story, although the reader needs to make allowances for the attitudes of the 1960s when it was written -  for instance there are some nasty homophobic slurs in an early chapter which jar badly with modern attitudes, but were unfortunately par for the course back then.
