Black Butterfly

A Lucifer Box Novel

The third volume in the fabulous Lucifer Box trilogy features the same combination of rapier wit and bawdy behavior that makes lucifer "the most likeable scoundrel since flashman" (Jasper fforde, author of the Thursday Next series).

Lucifer Box. He’s tall, he’s dark and, like the shark, he looks for trouble.

Or so he wishes. For, with Queen Elizabeth newly established on her throne, the now elderly secret agent is reaching the end of his scandalous career. Despite his fast-approaching retirement, however, queer events leave Box unable to resist investigating one last case…

Why have pillars of the Establishment started dying in bizarrely reckless accidents?

Who are the deadly pay-masters of enigmatic assassin Kingdom Kum?

And who or what is the mysterious Black Butterfly?

From the seedy streets of Soho to the souks of Istanbul and the sun-drenched shores of Jamaica, Box must use his artistic license to kill and eventually confront an enemy with its roots in his own notorious past. Can Lucifer Box save the day before the dying of the light?
