When Lucifer Box Esq - dandy, rake, portraitist and His Majesty's Most Dashing Secret Agent - wrote the first volume of his adventures, The Vesuvius Club, he could never have imagined that one hundred and one years later he would end up as an artwork himself. But - like Dorian Grey before him - he has. Inspect Box at home in Number 9 Downing Street (but try to ignore the mess) and in the Turkish Baths. Witness his coach-chase though London, on the path of the murderer of Britain's most eminent scientific brains. Spy on the secrets he uncovers when that path leads him to Naples, including the biggest secret of all - the nefarious (but nice) Vesuvius Club.
On reading Mark Gatiss's novel, Stephen Fry exclaimed 'More, I want more!' Well here it is. A book that might just match the wildest dreams of its hero, The Vesuvius Club: The Graphic Edition illustrates Lucifer Box deliciously sandwiched between Edwardian low life and high society.
