5.0 out of 5 stars Ten years on...and I still love this book, 14 Aug 2008
This review is from: Rune (Paperback)
I read `Rune' ten years ago and I hardly ever re-read books, but for Christopher Fowler I make an exception.

A number of bizarre deaths are occurring across London, seemingly suicides, but the detectives Arthur Bryant and John may think differently. Are these deaths in fact murders which have been cleverly concealed? They set out to find a common denominator and this leads them to meet Harry Buckingham, an arrogant ad-man who has done some investigating of his own.

However, if you're familiar with Christopher Fowler you'll realise that there is unlikely to be a simple and common place explanation. Enter a string of fabulous characters; the `challenging' Grace, the driver of the truck that killed Harry's father; Frank, who is obsessed with conspiracy theories (just because it's a conspiracy theory, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you); Janice Longbright, the glamorous and 1950's obsessed Sergeant; the White Witches of the Camden Town Coven; Dorothy Huxley in her decaying library and a women who channels spirits through stuffed cats!

Expect the usual humour and mix of thrills, as well as an astounding amount of London trivia. `Rune' hasn't been included in the recent `Bryant and May' series and so may be a considered a great find and added bonus now that the series has come to a close. Fabulous!
