The Vesuvius Club
The Vesuvius Club by Mark Gatiss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a brilliant book. I adore Mark Gatiss’s writing style and turn of phrase. Set in the early 1900s, a dashing, suave, sophisticated artist leads a double life as an agent for His Majesty’s Government. Full of tongue-in-cheek humour, plenty of action, and just a little bit naughty in places. This book is a joy to read. Excellent!

One word of caution if you buy the Kindle version: the illustrations have all been removed, and therefore in my opinion it is incomplete. Find yourself a hard copy.
