My first Bryant and May "Peculiar Crimes Unit" mystery but it will not be my last. A well drawn, eccentric cast of characters and a plot that moves along quickly. Laugh out loud humorous at times. If you want an engaging read which does not take itself too seriously but is well written, I would recommend.

I recently discovered Fowler and am devouring this series. Peculiar is the correct word.

He's right up there on par with Alan Bradley as far as eccentric characters go.

Mysterious occurrences in England, dusty old figures, mouldering buildings, facts and legends shrouded in the mists of time - satisfaction guaranteed!

I love this series! Another great Bryant and May mystery that involves all kinds of characters and takes them all over London. (I now want to go to London in the summer, even though I have no murder to solve and don't like rain).

Every so often there’s a book that’s clearly a cut above the usual creativity most fictional writers display on a regular basis. The murderer’s MO is by far the most original I’ve read in years. Even the red herring was well done and completely believable (to me, at least). Absolutely brilliant all around. I can’t wait to see the next book in the series.
