Entertaining as ever

Thoroughly enjoyed it but did guess the twist early on. Quite agree with the voices being old for the prequel but it did mean I knew the characters immediately. The narration is superb, a joy to listen to him.

Best B&M book since Water Room

Best B&M book since Water Room. Incredibly amusing, heartfelt and with the excellent characters and twists of a Fowler novel.

What Fun!

I am a huge fan of Bryant and May and the author Christopher Fowler. I was delighted that a new book had arrived and it did not disappoint. Set in the 60's it is a bit of an homage to Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and the like. It is set in a stately home during a house party. There is a murder and the detectives have to solve it by Monday Morning any way I can't say more but it has lots of red herrings and the plot twists and turns. It was great fun especially all the cultural references to the 60's .I really hope the author will write more about the PCU's old cases I think there is lots more to enjoy. The narrator as always is excellent he does a fantastic job here not only with Arthur and John but in this book all the upper crust characters as well.
