Christopher Fowler is brilliant- cannot think of a novel or short story of his I haven't liked , & the latest Bryant & May is no exception....

Bryant & May , for those who don't know, are 2 detectives of a certain age who are the mainstay of the Peculiar Crimes Unit , which investigates the more intriguing cases.... In this 1 they're trying to find out who is trying to drive a senior Home Office official's wife insane - as well as investigating an unexplained death in St Bride's church , the "Cathedral of Fleet Street"...

As ever with this series , the plotting is intricate & there are red herrings galore . The characters are eccentric but real , & the writing is laced with some (at times very dark) humour . Fowler's love of London , particularly it's odd & hidden side is , as ever, used to good effect , & in Arthur Bryant the reader has an excellent , if occasionally exasperating, guide to London's secret side.

It's brilliant. Buy it . Read it . Do it NOW!
