9780141003863: All the Tea in China

Inspired by a shotgun-blast in the seat of his breeches, young Karli Van Cleer quits his native Holland to seek his fortune. All The Tea In China follows his perilous journey across the globe, as Karli is confronted by mountainous seas, high-piled plates of curry and the ferocious penalties of the Articles of War. En route he acquires some interesting diseases, a fortune, and a wife almost as good as new. And changes his name to Mortdecai. Addicts and newcomers alike will revel in this lusty tale of an ancestor of Charlie Mortdecai who helped make Britain great - for a price.
