A Peculiar Crimes Unit Mystery
by Christopher Fowler
To begin with, I love the cover of this novel. I find it to be both nostalgic and engaging in its appeal. It puts the reader in just the right mood to enjoy the latest Bryant and May novel. These two are not your average detectives but, rather, are full of idiosyncrasies. This is hardly surprising as they work for the Peculiar Crimes Unit.
This entry involves a politician on St. Clement’s Day. What follows is a complicated adventure with nursery rhyme connections. The virtual armchair traveler will also enjoy the London setting.
This is a long running series. Those new to Bryant and May can still enjoy this title although they may want to go back to read all of the others upon finishing this book.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
