Lucifer Box returns in the third and final tale of this Mark Gatiss series. Nearing retirement, our intrepid secret agent cannot resist one last case which takes him from the seedy streets of Soho to the sun drenched beaches of Jamaica. A charming, witty and intelligent leading man, you never know what next adventure or drama will befall Lucifer which is what makes these books so enjoyable. Certainly not a series for those who are easily shocked, Gatiss can throw a curve ball in and send you reeling which all adds to the thrill of the story. What a shame this is the last in the series.

If you like Mark Gatiss you might also like to read books by George Macdonald Fraser, Leslie Thomas and Tom Sharpe.

Black Butterfly by Mark Gatiss

LUCIFER BOX. He's tall, he's dark and, like the shark, he looks for trouble. Or so he wishes.

For, with Queen Elizabeth newly established on her throne, the now elderly secret agent is reaching the end of his scandalous career. Despite his fast-approaching retirement, queer events leave Box unable to resist investigating one last case...Why have pillars of the Establishment started dying in bizarrely reckless accidents? Who are the deadly pay-masters of enigmatic assassin Kingdom Kum? And who or what is the mysterious Black Butterfly? From the seedy streets of Soho to the souks of Istanbul and the sun-drenched shores of Jamaica, Box must use his artistic licence to kill and eventually confront an enemy with its roots in his own notorious past. Can Lucifer Box save the day before the dying of the light?
