    This is probably now my favorite of what is one of my favorite series Just when you wonder what Christopher Fowler can do with his lead characters, Bryant May, he moves in unexpected directions and keeps the reader moving forward with him At the start, continuing from the last book, the ravages of age are

    I have previously read two other Bryant and May titles which I enjoyed 4 star reviews I love their quirkiness and, in particular, Arthur Bryant s disordered mind and convoluted thought processes However this is a strange book, and one I could not get drawn into There is a smattering of gems, and I learnt a lot of t

    3.5 starsI made a rookie mistake and started a series right in the middle without any background at all in my defence audible lured me into it as this one was on special shame on me I enjoyed it but I know I missed out on so much character input it s quirky and funny and I loved the Miss Marple with a modern edge vibe Actua

    Long live the PCU Saved from an ignominious end, the cast and crew of the Peculiar Crimes Unit are back from the brink yet again at the close of this book and Christopher Fowler promises there will be at least oneadventure to come.The last several books have been increasingly melancholy in tone as our beloved Arthur Bryant seems to be facing a rare strain of

    It is so easy for me to love a Bryant and May novel They give me the things I want most when I pick up a mystery novel This one has an explanation for what has been ailing Arthur Bryant author Christopher Fowler says he has been giving us clues through the last three books but I have to confess to not being eagle eyed enough to pick up on them so now I m happy again t

    Quite good fun.My View Wacky and bizarre, this episode is full of eccentricities and over the top behaviours by our beloved Arthur Bryant and for a short while Bryant is convinced that he is developing a type of dementia or the like read the clues scattered like crumbs and you will draw your own conclusion.This is another enjoyable episode in the life of The Peculiar Crimes Un
