Summary

The odd couple of detection, the brilliant but cranky Arthur Bryant and John May of London's Peculiar Crimes Unit, return in a tense, atmospheric new thriller that keeps you guessing right to the end. This time the detectives are up against a series of bizarre murders that defy human understanding, and a killer no human hand may be able to stop. A mysterious stranger in outlandish Edwardian garb defaces a painting in the National Gallery. Then a guest at the exclusive Savoy Hotel is fatally bitten by what appears to be a marshland snake. An outbreak of increasingly bizarre crimes has hit London, and, fittingly, come to the attention of the Peculiar Crimes Unit.

I am loving this book

I have never read anything by this author but I am totaly gripped by this book. I am just about finished the first part and am looking forward to more.

I will be sad when it comes to the conclusion.

Enjoably Eccentric

Enjoyable and quirky, with a plot to match. This is not gripping police-procedural stuff, but more tongue-in-cheek light hearted entertainment with a central puzzle which is reminiscent of Jules Verne style sci-fi. Well narrated, though I did find some of the characterisations jarring at times.

always a pleasure.

Wonderful reader, and Bryant & May are always a pleasure - and never disappoint. I love their quirks and how Fowler knows not to make them too predictable, and the stories hold together so well. What a treat, always.

a grand read

Well, I'm in the midst of this one & really loving it. It's quite witty & I find the mystery compelling. The characters are engaging & the reader does an excellent job of shifitng his accent and intonation for each one. One of my favorite books from audible so far.
