9780857523457: Bryant & May - London's Glory: (Short Stories) (Bryant & May Short Stories)

In every detective's life there are cases that can't be discussed. Now Arthur Bryant has decided to open the files on eleven of these previously unseen investigations. The first-ever collection of Bryant & May stories not only sheds light on eleven classic cases but also contains everything you need to know about the two octogenarian detectives and the Peculiar Crimes Unit.

Review:

"Witty, engaging mix of crime drama and comedy that's also an esoteric history of London." THE SUN "Off-kilter, witty and unorthodox...winningly eccentric...London, in all its non-homogenous, sprawling splendour, is as much a character as Fowler's sleuthing duo." -- Barry Forshaw FINANCIAL TIMES "Wonderful ... not only are there eleven short stories featuring our elderly and eccentric detectives, but there are notes on all the regulars and also a divine cartoon of the Peculiar Crimes Unit premises ... Fowler delivers a feast of cases with that slightly skew-whiff view. This really is great stuff" CRIMESQUAD magazine
