review After You with the Pistol Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB 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 Picad. Just brilliant I ve been meaning to read this for the past year and didn t know what to expectIt s extremely funny Mortdecai is such a great character and the mystery is as convoluted as they come Early on I was laughing so hard and freuently that I had to put the book down and ask myself how likely it was that I would even finish the book but as the end drew near the jokes were a little less freuent and I had to work hard to put fix the events in to my idea of what the plot was But still a near perfect Upper Class British version of the pulp fiction noirAfter this I cannot recommend any of the Mortdecai novels highly enough
