Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cult classics in the UK since their first publication there in the 1970s, Kyril Bonfiglioli's wickedly fun mysteries featuring the Honorable Charlie Mortdecai — degenerate aristocrat, amoral art dealer, seasoned epicurean, unwilling assassin, and general knave-about-Piccadilly — are favorites of Stephen Fry and Julian Barnes, among others.

Charlie's back in After You with the Pistol, along with his new bride, Joanna, and his thuggish manservant, Jock. He's also still drinking too much whiskey — and anything else he can get his hands on — which makes it all the more difficult to figure out what the beautiful and fabulously wealthy Joanna is up to when she tries to convince Charlie to kill the Queen. Suffice it to say, Joanna is not quite what she seems. Don't miss this brilliant mixture of comedy, crime, and suspense.

Synopsis:

A cult classic in the UK, "After You with a Pistol" is a deliciously nasty, highly entertaining comic masterpiece featuring the Honorable Charlie Mortdecai.

About the Author

Kyril Bonifiglioli (1928-85) was an art dealer, accomplished fencer, a fair shot with most weapons, and a serial marrier of beautiful women. He claimed to be "abstemious in all things except drink, food, tobacco, and talking," and "loved and respected by all who knew him slightly."
