Any book with a possum on the cover is alright by me. A suburban computer technician has a vision and claims to be the second coming of Christ. A dark comedy by an intelligent author of insight and wit.
Intensely silly and yet unabashedly erudite, The Vesuvius Club weaves together dark humor (with a British accent), saucy romantic encounters and action-packed fight scenes. Written by Mark Gatiss who is one of the contributing writers to the new Doctor Who series and who played Mycroft Holmes in the recent Sherlock series.
