Just when you think that there can't be any more plots another great story appears. Please don't stop writing these wonderful books. I learn so much about London from them and want to find out more. Thankyou

Wild Chamber, the latest Bryant and May book and as fascinating as ever in one of my favourite series. Each book can be read as a standalone but I believe for most enjoyment they are best read in order, or at least begun earlier in the series. A vast history of the Peculiar Crimes Unit and the various relationships of its' members and associates has built up over many years and adds immeasurably to the overall pleasure. Some particular comments or unexpected characters in a book as far along as number fourteen may seem strange to a new reader.
A long and complex investigation here, involving several murders, but that is what we have come to expect and it didn't disappoint. I am delighted that Arthur Bryant has survived his treatment and enjoyed the way that he uses his 'hallucinations' for some apt references from the past to help his thinking fall into place.
This time we also learned about the many London Parks and green spaces to add to the wealth of London lore we gain from every single book. It was also a warning to keep our attention drawn on the threat that real life developers are posing to these precious green spaces and our need to protect them.
Tim Goodman as always the perfect narrator, he has portrayed every single one of the many characters become old familiar friends .
Thank you, Mr Fowler,sir, you are a master craftsman and I suspect there are echoes of yourself in Arthur, although hopefully not the hoarding of food in your pockets. Long may it continue.

This is my favorite detective series ever. Each character is so wonderfully developed and the character development is brought to life even more by the wonderful voices done by the narrator.every time one of these and I feel like I'm going to miss my family.
