About this Item

First UK edition/first printing of author's second Lucifer Box Victorian mystery. Signed on a bookplate purporting to honor perfect attendance at St Bede's Convent School in Norfolk. Before he co-created SHERLOCK, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and played the part of Mycroft Holmes in the series, Mark Gatiss wrote some extremely amusing Victorian crime novels with a very eccentric protagonist, Lucifer Box. The page block is a bit tanned, but this copy is otherwise as new and unread in a like dustwrapper. Entertaining insight into one of the minds behind Sherlock. Bookseller Inventory # 1407250003

About this title


Lucifer Box - the gorgeous butterfly of King Bertie's reign, portraitist, dandy and terribly good secret agent - is feeling his age. Assigned to observe the activities of fascist leader Olympus Mons and his fanatical Amber Shirts in a snow-bound 1920s New York, Box finds himself framed for a vicious murder. Using all his native cunning, Box escapes aboard a vessel bound for England armed only with a Broadway midget's suitcase and a string of unanswered questions. What lies hidden in the bleak Norfolk convent of St Bede? What is 'the lamb' that Olympus Mons searches for in his bid for world domination? And what has all this to do with a medieval prayer intended to summon the Devil himself? From the glittering sophistication of Art Deco Manhattan to the eerie Norfolk coast and the snow-capped peaks of Switzerland The Devil in Amber takes us on a thrilling ride that pits Lucifer Box against the most lethal adversary of his career : the Prince of Darkness himself.
