5.0 out of 5 stars Strong entry in delightful series, 10 Oct 2013
By 
This review is from: Bryant & May and the Invisible Code: (Bryant & May Book 10) (Paperback)
This was a treat. Even after 10 books in the series, Christopher Fowler has still got it. "The Invisible Code" is fresh and lively and original, not a formulaic entry in a tired series. The suspense and pacing are excellent, so very hard to put this book down and do other things. The mystery is intriguing, and I didn't even begin to see how it would all fit together or who the culprit would be, but it all came together seamlessly. The balancing act of suspense, occult, and comedy never falters, you are chilled and then laughing. Arthur Bryant continues to be a comic delight, spending time with him is such fun, and he shines in this book. So much arcane knowledge, so much lateral thought, and so funny--his appearance at The very posh Claridge's is a hoot, as is his dysfunctional relationship with technology. Even the secondary characters are fascinating--are Renfield and Longbright ever going to get together? Colin and Meera? Crippen is pregnant? So much going on. And the ending made me want to begin book 11 immediately. Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for my advance copy.
