When the first threats appear they are assumed to be a hoax. But when a hundred and twenty people are threatened with death, and only a few live because they pay the ransom, while the others die from natural causes or accidents then it is no hoax. Lucifer, a paranoid young man, believes that he is Satan and has a remarkable psychic ability to predict death by natural causes. Lucifer's ability is used by Seff's gang to extract ransom from their rich victims. Seff selects the victims and warns them of their impending death, any who does not pay the ransom seemingly dies from natural causes, helped on their way by Seff's executioner, Jack Wish. By what means are the victims being killed? How is the ransom money being collected without trace from under the sea? Modesty's friend, Steve Collier, the renowned psychic researcher, is kidnapped to help Seff and he accidentally blows Modesty's cover as she investigates this mystery. Taken prisoner Modesty and her faithful lieutenant, Willie Garvin, must escape Seff's island stronghold.

The female spy has long exerted a strong grip on the popular imagination. With reference to popular fiction, film and television Violent Femmes examines the figure of the female spy as a nexus of contradictory ideas about femininity, power, sexuality and national identity. Fictional representations of women as spies have recurrently traced the dynamic of women’s changing roles in British and American culture. Employing the central trope of women who work as spies, Rosie White examines cultural shifts during the twentieth century regarding the role of women in the professional workplace. Violent Femmes examines the female spy as a figure in popular discourse which simultaneously conforms to cultural stereotypes and raises questions about women's roles in British and American culture, in terms of gender, sexuality and national identity. Immensely useful for a wide range of courses such as film and television studies, English, cultural studies, women’s studies, gender studies, media studies, communications and history, this book will appeal to students from undergraduate level upwards.
