4.0 out of 5 stars Deep and delightful research, 17 Nov 2013
This review is from: Bryant & May and the Memory of Blood: (Bryant & May Book 9) (Paperback)
The Peculiar Crimes Unit is alerted to one of its most impossible whodunits, and the murders continue even while they proceed to sniff out the evidence. As with all plots involving the intellectual homicide duo Bryant and May, the mystery centres on British folklore and history. On this occasion, it's Punch & Judy, London theatre and the intricate world of mechanical dolls or automatons.
The jokey dialogue contributes to the pleasure of the chase. Proceed with patience when you encounter a seemingly overlong opening to the first murder, a locked room teaser. These are the suspects and it is where the vital clue lurks. Bryant takes more than 300 pages to out-think the killer. His eventual explanation (after several more weird deaths) of how a Punch dummy in a sealed room fooled everyone shows the depth and originality of this author's research.
