Yet another Christmas present. I wasn't at all impressed by Black Butterfly, but did enjoy The Vesuvius Club, so came at this one fairly open minded. I liked it, Lucifer Box (that magnificent bastard) is on the run and up to his neck in trouble - par for the course really.

As with the others in the series, things quickly gallop towards the ridiculous, however there was much more to this than just Lucifer's usual seductions and swashbuckling - there's another sinister organisation, some mucking about with things best left alone and even a few sections that I found very moving and sad.

Easily the best of the trilogy.
