Excellent Series - but where is the last one?

Christopher Fowlers series of books about the two old detectives from the PCU are excellent - a welcome antidote to the usual detective stories. I would recommend this series to all crime readers!

Just one issue though - why have Audible not published the previous book - On The Loose? It's available on Whole Story Audio so difficult to understand why Audible members can't get hold of the book here? Any news on when it will be available as you really need to follow the books in series order to get the full benefit.

New Bryant and May on Audible, at last

After what seems like an age the most recent Bryant and May is now on Audible. Tim Goodman's narration is as good as ever and this books' collection of fascinating London facts is based around the tube network.

The book contains the end of the Mr Fox plot from On the Loose (which is oddly not on Audible yet, hope it's coming soon) and the rather grubby goings on of a group of five students. The two main story lines are intermingled with other smaller but related asides and the whole thing twists more than cat being given a tablet.

I had previously read the paper version, and it's testament to the writer's skills that not only could I not remember 'whodunnit' when I started (which normal for me) I was just as surprised at the end as I was the first time.

If you're a Bryant and May fan then no doubt you'll already have it, for everyone else, the joy these elderly detectives bring has to be experienced. Start with the Water Room and you'll never look back.
