Don't Point That Thing at MeBook - 2014
'I am Charlie Mortdecai. I like art and money and dirty jokes and drink. I am very successful . . .' But right now the Hon. Charlie Mortdecai - degenerate aristocrat and amoral art dealer - is up to his earlobes in trouble. Chief Superintendent Martland is looking for a stolen Goya and thinks Charlie either has it or knows where it is. Unfortunately, he's right. Worse still, possessing the painting is proving to be something of a liability for poor Charlie and his thuggish manservant Jock. Because, if they're not careful, some very nasty men with guns are liable to make them very dead . . . 'You couldn't snuggle under the duvet with anything more disreputable and delightful.' Stephen Fry 'Like Bertie and Jeeves, Charlie and Jock make an imperishable double act . . . funny, chilling, and sometimes surprisingly moving.' Sunday Telegraph 'A rare mixture of wit and imaginative unpleasantness.' Julian Barnes In the next book, A newlywed Charlie attempts regicide to please his wife.
