Charlie Mortdecai is a louche art dealer with some distinctly dubious friends in the London underworld and some great connections to the British upper classes. He features in the three brilliant black-comedy thrillers originally published in the 70s and collected in this volume: "Don't Point That Thing At Me", "After You With The Pistol", and "Something Nasty In The Woodshed." 'A writer capable of a rare mixture of wit and imaginative unpleasantness' - Julian Barnes.
Collected into a single volume for the first time, Don’t Point that Thing at Me, After You with a Pistol, and Something Nasty in the Woodshed chronicles the misadventures of the Honorable Charlie Mortdecai: degenerate aristocrat, amoral art dealer, seasoned epicurean, unwilling assassin, and general knave-about-Piccadilly.About the Author:
Kyril Bonfiglioli died in his fifties in 1985. After Oxford, he worked as an art dealer. He described himself as "a marrier of beautiful women and a fair shot with most weapons". He wrote four Charlie Mortdecai novels, and left a fifth unfinished which has recently been completed by Craig Brown. They have become cult books, with admirers ranging from Julian Barnes to Craig Brown and Miles Kington.
