After You with the Pistol

After You with the Pistol"We're seduced by Charlie's wit, wordplay and disarming candor about his vanity and many appetiteshe moves from one malicious witticism or fine meal to another as he ingests vast amount of booze and exhales bon mots."
Dallas Morning News

"Bonfiglioli's marvelous creation never flags, mixing the best of Ian Fleming's 007 with P. G. Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster. Listening to Mortdecai natter onabout hangover cures, oysters and sex, the sanitized paper strips of hotel toiletsall while he escapes certain death at every corner, is one of life's great pleasures."

Kyril Bonfiglioli's wickedly fun mysteries featuring the Honorable Charlie Mortdecai degenerate aristocrat, amoral art dealer, seasoned epicurean, unwilling assassin, and general knave-about-Picadilly have been cult classics in the UK since their first publication there in the 1970s.

Charlie's back in After You with the Pistol, along with his new bride, Johanna, 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 Johanna is up to when she tries to convince Charlie to kill the Queen. Suffice it to say that Johanna is not quite what she seems. Don't miss this brilliant mixture of comedy, crime, and suspense.

While he lived, Kyril Bonfiglioli was often confused with his hero, Charlie Mordecai. A heavy drinker until his death from cirrhosis of the liver, he once said, "Drs Alka and Seltzer should have won the Nobel Prize years ago: my only quarrel with their brain-child is its noise."

Simon Prebble, a British born performer, is a stage and television actor and veteran narrator of some three hundred audio book titles. As one of AudioFile's "Golden Voices," he has received over twenty Earphones Awards. He lives in New York.
