Summary
"A cult classic in the UK since its first publication there in the 1970s, Don't Point That Thing at Me is the first of a series of hilarious and dark-humored crime thrillers featuring the Honorable Charlie Mortdecai: degenerate aristocrat, amoral art dealer, seasoned epicurean, unwilling assassin, and acknowledged coward. With his thuggish manservant-the incomparably named Jock Strapp-Mortdecai endures all manner of nastiness involving stolen paintings, a vintage Rolls Roys, secret police, a whirlwind trip to the United States, a dead client, and a ravishing young wealthy widow...all just to make a dishonest living. He's not one to pass up a drink-or too many-and he prides himself on being stylishly dressed for whatever occassion may present itself, no matter how debauched. Don't miss this brilliant mixture of comedy, crime, and suspense." --From back cover
