"Mr Mortdecai, why do you suppose I and my superiors have preserved you from death at very very great trouble and expense?" Charlie Mortdecai—degenerate aristocrat and victim of his own larceny and licentiousness—has no idea. Until it is made clear to him that he must marry the beautiful, sex-crazed and very, very rich Johanna Krampf. The fly in the ointment is that Johanna thinks nothing of involving poor Charlie in her life-threatening schemes such as monarch-assassination, heroin smuggling and—worst of all—survival training at a college for feminist spies. Perhaps, it's all in a good cause—if only Charlie can live long enough to find out.
