Kyril Bonfiglioli (1928-1985) was an art dealer, accomplished fencer, a fair shot with most weapons, and a serial marrier of beautiful women. He claimed to be "abstemious in all things except drink, food, tobacco, and talking" and "loved and respected by all who knew him slightly."

Charlie Mordecai, a "degenerate aristocrat, amoral art dealer, seasoned epicurean, unwilling assassin, and acknowledged coward," is our protagonist in this comic British crime series from the 1970s. In this one, Charlie encounters a stolen painting and takes a motor trip to New Mexico in a very special Rolls Royce. Mayhem, mischief, close calls, sex, food, and drink follow--something for everyone. The excellent Simon Prebble enjoys himself throughout as he mixes escapades with discussions of wine and fine cuisine. While his well-known range isn't really tested, he does get to entertain us with American English of the Southwest, a host of British accents, and the occasional French accent. The listener's attention will never wander. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
