Book Recs for Anglophiles | ‘The Vesuvius Club’, by Mark Gatiss
Lucifer Box is the darling of the Edwardian belle monde – society’s most fashionable portrait painter is a wit, a dandy, a rake, the guest all hostesses (and not a few hosts) must have. But few know that Lucifer Box is also His Majesty’s most accomplished and daring secret agent. And so of course when Britain’s most prominent scientists begin turning up dead, there is only one man his country can turn to.
I am actually reading this book at the moment. Once I’m finished, I’ll post a link to my Goodreads so you can read my review of it.
