A banking scandal has filled the city with violent protests, and a young homeless man burns to death after being caught between rioters and the police.
But all is not as it seems; an opportunistic killer is using the chaos to exact revenge. Arthur Bryant and John May soon find their investigation taking an apocalyptic turn as the case comes to involve the history of mob rule, corruption, punishment, and the legend of Guy Fawkes.

Good as ever
I can do the ironing whilst listening to the story
Bryant, he is such a tricky, challenging and difficult old man, but with a heart of gold.
lively characterisation and emotional depth.
More of an intellectual reaction, I enjoy how the author slips in so much information on the history of London
I am amazed that the Bryant and May series have not yet made it to TV or film.
I've never read any of these books, however Tim Goodman brings these characters to life so well I couldn't contemplate reading them instead of listening.
It was as always all good, however it got quite tense towards the end.
Byrant will always be my favourite
The exchanges between Bryant and May at the end.
This one made me sad. The characters are so well rounded I wanted to give both Bryant and May a hug.
