Here a woman is found drowned in her basement - with nary a drop of water to explain the crime. The odd couple of detection, the brilliant but cranky Arthur Bryant and John May of London's Peculiar Crimes Unit, return in a tense, atmospheric new thriller that keeps you guessing right to the end. This time the detectives are up against a series of bizarre murders that defy human understanding, and a killer no human hand may be able to stop.
An artist is found dead in a gallery with locked doors and windows. A television presenter is struck by lightning while indoors.
But Bryant has lost his nerve, and May is fighting to keep the unit from closure. Worse still, an unsolved mystery from the past has returned to haunt them The unthinkable has happened at London's Peculiar Crimes Unit. In the depths of winter, a member of staff has been found murdered, and everyone who works there is suddenly a suspect. But Arthur Bryant and John May, the eccentric elderly detectives who run London's strangest crime division, aren't on hand to solve the crime. They've ventured into the heart of the English countryside, only to become stranded on a desolate snowbound section of road.
One night, Arthur Bryant witnesses a drunken lady coming out of a pub. The next morning, she is found dead at the exact spot where their paths crossed.
Bryant and May On The Loose
Even more disturbingly, the pub has vanished and the street has changed. Bryant is convinced that he saw them as they looked over a century before - is elderly detective losing his mind? Then it becomes clear that a number of women have met their ends in London pubs and the likeliest suspect seems to be a mental patient. Long regarded as an anachronism, the Peculiar Crimes Unit is to be disbanded. For octogenarian detectives Arthur Bryant and John May, it seems retirement is now the only option.

Edging closer to what lies beneath the city, are Bryant and May about to uncover something truly bizarre?
Internationally best-selling author Christopher Fowler dazzles audiences with his mastery of impossible-crime mysteries - and with the exploits of his beloved, odd-couple detectives Arthur Bryant and John May. The death of a child and what seems to be a murderous puppet make a perfect case for Bryant and May and the Peculiar Crimes Unit.
Theo is a major jerk. I had no idea it took all those sorts of issues into account. The world is coming to an end. Bryant has finally realized that he keeps trying to make the facts fit his theories. The thing is, his arcane interests usually push him in the right direction. It certainly made it easier to understand why detectives and constables get converted over to the PCU version of crime solving.
But his identity is false, his links to society are invisible, and his home yields no clues.
All they know is that somehow he escaped from a locked room and murdered one of their best and brightest. Now the detectives are being lured down into the darkest recesses of the London Underground where their quarry, expertly disguised, has struck again. Their search takes them into the vast labyrinth of tunnels, a subterranean world full of legends and ghost stations, which tie the city together. Edging closer to what lies hidden beneath the city — and to the madness that is driving a man to murder — Bryant and May are about to uncover a mystery as bizarre as anything they have ever encountered.
Although I suspect any crime scene techs would love to see Bryant out to pasture.
