Cobra Trap (Modesty Blaise)

I saw a mention of Cobra Trap by Peter O'Donnell (Souvenir Press, 2010), a collection of Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin stories, in Alexiad recently and ordered it.  I've always enjoyed the characters and their adventures, and I enjoyed these stories, which cover a long time span...  I'm rereading it now as a matter of fact.  The stories are Bellman, The Dark Angels, Old Alex, The Girl with the Black Balloon, and Cobra Trap.  I liked Old Alex the most, but they're all good.  Hmm.  I see that besides all the novels, there's another story collection, Pieces of Modesty.  I'll have to check that out now.
