New BBC Radio Play of A Taste for Death

BIG news, everyone... the BBC is producing a radio play of the Modesty Blaise novel A Taste for Death. The play will be serialised on Radio 4 in December (yes, this year!)

The script has been written by bestselling crime author Stef Penney (author of ‘The Tenderness of Wolves’), and Daphne Alexander has been confirmed for the part of Modesty Blaise.

I'll post any more details as I get them... stay tuned!
