"A cult classic since its first publication in the UK in the 1970s. The Mortdecai Trilogy is a series of dark-humored and atmospheric crime thrillers featuring Charlie Mortdecai: degenerate aristocrat, amoral art dealer, seasoned epicurean, unwilling assassin, and experienced self-avowed coward." "Something Nasty in the Woodshed finds Charlie, exiled from London due to his growing unpopularity caused by a few shady art deals, taking refuge in a country estate on the Channel Island of Jersey. What begins as a hedonistic interlude morphs into a macabre manhunt, as Charlie seeks to expose a local rapist whose modus operandi bears a striking resemblance to that of a warlock from ancient British mythology known as "The Beast of Jersey.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
