If you think I'm even vaguely amusing (looks don't count) you'll enjoy Mark Gatiss' The Vesuvius Club.

I haven't read the sequels but I fully intend to.

Sample snark:

"I ate something to take away the taste of the champagne and then smoked a cigarette to take away the taste of the food."

"The gulf that existed between our financial situations resulted in the kind of slow-burning resentment that fuels the best friendships."

I also read the sequels (Devil in Amber and Black Butterfly), but I didn't like them as much.
