Two teenagers see a dead man rising from his grave. And if that's not alarming enough, one of them is killed in a hit and run accident. Soon it seems death is all around and Bryant and May must confront a group of latter-day bodysnatchers. More graves are desecrated, further deaths occur, and when Bryant is blindfolded and taken to a secret society, he realises that this case is more complex than even he had imagined.

another triumph

Would you consider the audio edition of Bryant & May and the Bleeding Heart to be better than the print version?

I've never read this series, I came across them on Audible and the narration brings the characters to life so well that I couldn't imagine them without Tim Goodman's simply perfect voices. It's like coming home and getting into your most comfy pj's.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bryant & May and the Bleeding Heart?

There's no one particular part the whole book is a joy

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

I've always loved Bryant, he's my favourite.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I'm not a person who can listen to anything all in one go. However, I listen in the car, doing housework, cooking..whenever I can

Any additional comments?

I actually read the penultimate book first as I didn't realise it was a series. I then started from the beginning and it didn't affect my enjoyment of the books at all. They are wonderful and I hope there are many instalments to come, with the excellent narration of Tim who brings all the characters to life.

Mysterious Crime Team Who You Just Let Reel You In

This is the first Bryant & May Book I've come across... What a Hidden Gem!

I've always loved reading & watching anything which begins with a mystery and trying to work out along the way how too solve it & along with like minded readers of this genre have read Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle, Wilkie Collins & many other revered authors & to tell the truth I never thought I'd find another author who could hold my interest in this way & then BANG along comes Christopher Fowlers "Bryant & May" ....
I purchased this from the Audible daily deal at a reduced price, believe you me I will be investing in the whole series I was so delighted with this wonderful find!!!
Tim Goodman who narrates does a marvelous job not only keeping you hooked listening but manages to give each character their own voice, therefore helping to create an image in your mind of how they appear...
I dont like elaborating on any books contents as I find the synopsis does enough to give a little peek of the enjoyment too come :-)

Great series!

I've enjoyed this series very much. The narrator is the same for all of them and he's perfect. The stories and the descriptions transport me to another place, and for that, I'm grateful.

I cannot agree with the ratings others have given this book. The voices were VERY irritating. The story trended to unbelievable.
