The Killing Ground from 1968

When a beetle in amber disappears, Modesty Blaise knows it is time to repay a debt – to an old guru that helped her in the past.

A Himalayan bear is supposed to point the way to an important reincarnation, so their task is to escort it to safety – with the help of some rebels, and with the Chinese army after them.

4 out of 5

Willie Garvin accidentally blowing the cover on a French agent and old girlfriend leads them to tangle with a highly professional gang out to hit a train. How do they plan to carry out their heavy gold loot? An exoskeleton.

3.5 out of 5

Modesty has decided to take some time off, and go native in a small Central American town, staying with a blind sculptor.

Things turn for the worse when the local president no longer rules, and a low-rent crimelord decides to have some of the local women taken for his use.

Blaise and friends take a dim view of this – and run across an old Irish friend who gives Modesty and Willie a big assist.

4 out of 5

A criminal named Bellman that Blaise and Garvin hounded to exhaustion snatches them for revenge – he has aged badly, and suffered multiple heart attacks, and wants to see them suffer in a rigged death trap manhunt before he expires.

Seems some people don’t learn, as in the case of this pair they definitely are The Most Dangerous Game.
