Synopsis On a Greek island Dr. Thaddeus Pilgrim, once a devout man of God but now devoted to the pursuit of murder, terrorism and acts of sadism, plans his most sinister project yet, the Hallelujah Scenario.
Modesty Blaise's loyal lieutenant, Willie Garvin, is kidnapped and brainwashed into believing that Modesty is dead and that he must kill her murderer -- a woman who looks exactly like Modesty herself.  Pawns in a deadly game, Modesty and Willie must fight against the diabolical ingenuity of Pilgrim's plan.
