If you could sum up White Corridor in three words, what would they be?
I love the Bryant and May books and this was a cracker. A roller coaster of murder, psychology and office politics and a corpse who isn't all that she seems. Add to the mix our two elderly detectives whose take on criminal investigation is a combination of common sense, lateral thinking and off the wall humour. A really unique take on detective novels - and the better for it.
What did you like best about this story?
The fact that the plot and the outcome always surprise you and the great characterisation of all the characters - especially Bryant and May. Despite the often gruesome murders they bring a humane and intriguing insight into crime, the people responsible and a refreshingly anarchic view of life and authority.
What about Tim Goodman’s performance did you like?
He is great. You totally forget there is just one voice - he brings the characters to life and you can see the action in your head - just like a film - he seems to revel in the subjects, especially Bryant whose eccentricity is brilliant conveyed by Goodman.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
A very peculiar crime.....two very peculiar detectives.
Any additional comments?
In the world of detective fiction it's great to have such an original and essentially British take on what is sometimes a very formulaic genre.

I just love the Peculiar Crimes mysteries. They are so much fun to listen to! And the narrator is fabulous. You can't go wrong with these books.

Wonderful, absolutely perfect narrator; endearing, lovable characters that I can't get enough of; masterful narrative structure.
Sure, the ending is a bit of a stretch, but it still goes down well. This series is one of my major addictions.
