Sir Gerald Tarrant, Head of a secret British agency, has heard from his friend, Dr Aaronson, that there's trouble at an archaeological dig in the Sahara. But when Sir Gerald and Modesty go to meet Dr Aaronson they find his lifeless body at the bottom of the stairs. Modesty's side-kick, Willie Garvin, meanwhile, has returned from South America with a blind Canadian girl called Dinah, whom he rescued from being kidnapped. Now, it seems that these two threads are connected. In this second episode, Dinah reveals her special skill, a talent that explains why the bad guys were after her. Modesty and Willie, meanwhile, get a lead from Paris and decide to follow it up. They leave Dinah and Steve at the cottage, with specially rigged steel screens over the windows to keep them safe. But is it enough to keep at bay Delicata, a villain of inhuman strength? Adapted by Stef Penney from the novel by Peter O'Donnell.
