Summary, etc.: Get ready for absolutely delectable audio in the form of newly re-released crime thriller starring degenerate aristocrat Charlie Mordecai and Jock Strapp, the thuggish anti-Jeeves. Rave reviews for these reissues have been appearing everywhere from the New Yorker to the Boston Globe. With plots as complex as anything Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammet could have come up with and imbued with a wit that recalls P.G. Wodehouse, these are smart mysteries for smart people. While he lived, Kyril Bonfiglioli was often confused with his hero, Charlie Mordecai. A heavy drinker until his death from cirrhosis of the liver, he once said, "Drs Alka and Seltzer should have won the Nobel Prize years ago: my only quarrel with their brain-child is its noise."
