My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Lucifer Box. I wish he were a real person. Dashing, intelligent, artistic, a spy, and assassin.

In this, the second of his (recorded) adventures, Lucifer is pitted against the megalomaniac Olympus Mons, his Amber-shirt-clad minions, and certain duplicitous members of the Royal Academy. Accused of a murder he did not commit (at least this one particular murder was not his doing) Lucifer flees back to England and must decipher the mystery of “The Lamb and The Prayer”. We are also introduced to Pandora Box, sister to our gallant hero, entangled in her own web. And then the story takes a turn for the somewhat supernatural.

Witty as ever. Fun and naughty. I feel as though Arthur Conan Doyle and Tom Sharpe had a literary baby in Mark Gatiss!
