This review is from: Bryant & May and the Memory of Blood (Bryant & May 9) (Hardcover)This is the author's ninth book in his Bryant & May series, and perhaps the best. The plot is as weird and wonderful as ever (I suspect that I'm not the only person who has always found Punch & Judy, the theme of the mystery, more than a little bit creepy. Add in the by now usual efforts of the powers that be to end the elderly detectives' bizarre careers, and a great twist at the end, and it all makes for a cracking read.
For people new to Bryant & May there's a Wikileaks dossier on the Peculiar Crimes Unit at the start of the book, so there's no reason for anybody not to read this. If there were any justice in the world, ten million people would be watching adaptations of Fowler's books each Monday on TV, not a certain other series involving aged detectives.
