In British author Fowler's ( sixth Bryant and May mystery-following White Corridor (2007), also available from Recorded Books-middle-aged women at various London pubs are dying for no apparent reason, and the senior-citizen detectives of the Peculiar Crimes Unit need to figure out why. Series reader Tim Goodman does a stellar job with this quirky cast of characters, especially in distinguishing between the two elderly protagonists. A worthy installment in a unique series that listeners who appreciate puzzle-based mysteries will love. [The Bantam hc was described as "a unique and engaging crime novel that will appeal to readers who enjoy unusual crimes and detectives with a British accent," LJ 10/1/08.-Ed.]-Kristen L. Smith, Loras Coll. Lib., Dubuque, IA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

"Funny, inventive, quirky and ultimately moving...another triumph for a writer of immense talent." --Richmond Times-Dispatch "It's tremendous fun to watch Bryant and May work their magic." --Baltimore Sun "A page-turning plot...mordant humor, fascinating trivia about London past and present, and the basis for an epic pub crawl of your own. What more could you want?" --Guardian, UK "How many locked-room puzzles can Bryant and May unlock before their Peculiar Crimes Unit is disbanded? Many more, one hopes!" --Kirkus Reviews "The team's heart and soul are its elderly lead detectives, John May and Arthur Bryant. Bryant is especially endearing cranky, absent-minded, brilliant and stuffed with obscure information about London."--Seattle Times
