It s a shame that Bonfiglioli only wrote three true blue Mortdecai novels The first Don t Point that Thing at Me ended on a cliffhanger the threat of a Sam Peckinpah esue shootout Who knows It s probably where Bonfiglioli wanted to leave it after all the British edition is entitled Mortdecai s Endgame The third Something Nasty in the Woodshed endedah ended And in such a satisfying but downbeat way Your favorite characters mine at least in the parlance of the Internet YMMV got out alivebarely I can only imagine that if Bonfiglioli had continued he d have upped the ante with each outing of Mortdecai Meaning less of the meat that made up the Mortdecai mortal coil would ve remained each and every time until hilariously we were narrated to by a dead man The books this review is really a catch all for the three novels suffers from typos as if the secretary typing it out for Overlook Press couldn t get the typing down fast enough and over to the sink to rub her hands raw with soap towelsPolitically incorrect I believe is the phrase that pays here And the stories have not aged a day thanks to this worldview shitty spiteful outlooks never change it s optimism that is always

The second of Bonfigliolis Mortdecai books picks up immediately from the first with the dissolute and shady art dealer in the clutches of various agencies who wish him harm He manages to extricate himself by promising to marry the gorgeous Johanna and keep tabs on her activitiesJohanna manipulates Mortdecai into a series of increasingly dubious activities from assassinating the ueen training at a camp for lesbian warriors and smuggling heroin out of China As the plot proceeds it just gets sillier and sillier serving mainly as a vehicle for Mortdecai to toss off a series of acid observations which keep the laughs coming After You with the Pistol is pure fluff but very enjoyable and well executed fluff There s a lot of Wodehouse in Bonfiglioli s characters and he makes reference to Jeeves and Wooster several times so it s clear they are among his inspirations These books are a bit manic than the Jeeves stories but lovers of Wodehouse would probably enjoy them
