Publisher's Summary

An artist is found dead in a gallery with locked doors and windows. A television presenter is struck by lightning while indoors.Two seemingly impossible crimes that only Arthur Bryant and John May of the Met's Peculiar Crimes Unit might be able to solve. But Bryant has lost his nerve, and May is fighting to keep the unit from closure. Worse still, an unsolved mystery from the past has returned to haunt them.


What the Critics Say

"This fourth Bryant and May novel delivers a delirious blend of black humor and suspense." (Booklist)
"This fine effort places Fowler in the first rank of contemporary mystery writers." (Publishers Weekly)

Tim Goodman produces excellent character voices but he frequently mispronounces words, which is very irritating.

Having enjoyed many books from Audible this title left me cold.

The blurb seemed interesting but I just couldn't get in to the story at all and found the narrator became increasingly annoying (partly my own fault for not checking out the preview).

Still that said, out of 40 plus downloads this has been the only one that hasn't lived up to expectations, so not a bad average really!
