Overview

'She was a Fellow and Tutor of Scone College and the world must learn that Fellows and Tutors of Scone College shall not be done to death with impunity.'

The Hon. Charlie Mortdecai, the inspiration for the character in the film Mortdecai, starring Johnny Depp, is invited to Oxford to investigate the cruel and most definitely unusual death of a don who collided with an omnibus. Though her death appears accidental, one or two things don't add up - such as two pairs of thugs who'd been following her just before her death. With more spies than you could shoe horn into a stretch limo and the solving of the odd murder along the way, The Great Mortdecai Moustache Mystery is a criminally comic delight.

In the 1970s, Bonfiglioli (19281985) made a splash with Dont Point That Thing at Me and two other humorous mysteries featuring Charlie Mortdecai, a former art dealer whos often on the wrong side of the law. Completed by British humorist Brown (Hello Goodbye Hello) and originally published in 1996, this first U.S. edition of the witty fourth and final Charlie Mortdecai mystery centers on the death of Bronwen Fellworthya fellow and tutor at Scone College, Oxford, Mortdecais alma materwho perished instantly when her motorcar collided with an omnibus. Mortdecai, who considers Fellworthy perhaps the only wholly unacceptable woman I have encountered in a long and varied experience, gets involved in the investigation thanks to, among others, Det. Chief Insp. Albert H. Sermon, who makes him a Special Detective Inspector with Detached Duties. Fans of Jonathan Gashs Lovejoy mysteries (The Judas Pair, etc.) will find a lot to like. (Nov.)
