When London is engulfed in riots and burning men, Arthur Bryant and John May, London’s most ingenious (and peculiar) detectives have to work fast to hold a sinister killer’s feet to the fire.
Author: Christopher Fowler
Bryant and May are on the case when a cemetery becomes the scene of a crime and secrets — and bodies — arise while the Tower ravens disappear.
It’s a deadly game of ambition that starts with two children playing “Witch Hunter” and ends with cold-blooded murder.
Bryant and May are confounded by yet more impossible deaths that follow the impossible death of a baby, strangled by a puppet and tossed from a window.
A combination of eleven short stories, 12.5 in the Bryant and May crime mystery series based in London, and it recaps the first ten books, although it ranges all over time from World War II to today.
Arthur Bryant, John May and the Peculiar Crimes Unit been given just one week to find a killer they’d caught once before . . .
The Peculiar Crimes Unit is being broken up, at least until a headless body is found in a freezer where it threatens a massive land development.
