Don't Point that Thing at Me

Don't Point that Thing at Me - Kyril Bonfiglioli I saw this in a real bookshop and it was one of the recommended reads from The Management. "Bertie Wooster meets ".
I was intrigued, but not enough to pay the full paper price, so a Kindle purchase it was. I wish I hadn't bothered. The story is OK (art thief gets caught up in all sorts of trouble) but the style was the problem in my opinion. Phrasing and phrases from other languages left me wondering what was going on, especially as the dictionary and wikipedia apps on the Kindle didn't help (Before you ask; yes I do have an education!). It only goes to show that only Wodehouse could write like Wodehouse.
The end of the book was a bit of a let down, too. Not going to spoil it, but it seemed rushed.
The rest of the series? I thing I will avoid it like a jolly plague of aunts (sic), what?
