Something Nasty in the Woodshed
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."

The third in the Charlie Mortdecai trilogy is good, and necessary devouring if you've started from the beginning, but still doesn't live up the the standard set by the original, Don't Point That Thing At Me. Read full review

Yeah, this one got a little crazy with the devil worship ceremony, but it still was a lot of fun. Bonfiglioli's style is very unique and likable. Read full review
