Publisher's Summary

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

Would you consider the audio edition of Bryant & May - The Burning Man to be better than the print version?

I can do the ironing whilst listening to the story


Who was your favorite character and why?

Bryant, he is such a tricky, challenging and difficult old man, but with a heart of gold.


What does Tim Goodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

lively characterisation and emotional depth.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

More of an intellectual reaction, I enjoy how the author slips in so much information on the history of London


Any additional comments?

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.


What did you like best about this story?

It was as always all good, however it got quite tense towards the end.


Which character – as performed by Tim Goodman – was your favourite?

Byrant will always be my favourite


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The exchanges between Bryant and May at the end.


Any additional comments?

This one made me sad. The characters are so well rounded I wanted to give both Bryant and May a hug.
