Most Modesty fans already know this tale, but here again is the story of how the character of Modesty Blaise came into being:

Thanks again to Peter for the many (continued) years of reading pleasure -  Happy Birthday!

I ma sure the other person though modelled on Peter is the character Fraser who constantly accompanies Tarrant and is the brains behind all the operations.
