review 1: This was a fun book with some hilarious lines. Bryant is an endearing old fart of a detective. Sometimes I was a little confused as to who some of the officers were but that's because I haven't read the rest of the series. But this one was so clever as to the dialogue that I do p...

review 1: American Shane Carter arrives at Hammer Horror's studios, and agrees to write a film script in less that five days. Meanwhile, far away in space and time, a girl steals a board game from the attic and begins to play the forbidden game Hell Train, a bit like Jumanji only with rail...

review 1: It's not my favorite (I think Ten Second Staircase still holds that place, and it may or may not be the first one I read in the series), but it's still lovely to see the two old buggers get down to it again. And the narrator is awesome; I'm gonna choose audio over reading the act...

review 1: Another Bryant & May novel and a return to form from Christopher Fowler. I really enjoyed this mystery of middle aged women dropping dead in public houses. I much preferred the storyline of this to the previous novel with the Highwayman, although the end felt a bit rushed. The bo...

review 1: This was a bit of a disappointment, as I've loved all of the prior Bryant and May books.It's as if someone other than Fowler took all of the characters, endeavored to copy the structure, and left out all of the special-ness. The mystery was incoherent. There were far too few in...

review 1: this is the first book I have read in this series. I have owned the first book in the series Full Dark House for a long time and read the first couple of chapters and put it down because I just couldn't get into it. I read The Invisible Code fairly quick and found it to be well w...

review 1: The Invisible Code was really fun! I love the grumpy old detectives; such a nice change from the vaguely middle-aged (but still virile) trope that has been so popular lately. The mystery - well, mysteries, actually - were interesting, and the pacing was good. I liked that Bryant ...

review 1: Bryant and Mays have a weird (even for them) case on their hands. A local theater owner has a party for his cast and supporters. During the party someone goes into the bedroom of their infant son and throws him out of the window. The only clue is next to the window is a Punch p...

review 1: I was pleasantly surprised by this one - it's a well-written, quirky and interesting murder mystery book, and I could quite happily read more from the series - good thing, too, as I have the next two books here at home waiting to be read!This is actually number seven in the serie...

review 1: I have read 9 of this series and have enjoyed all of them. They are about a peculiar crimes unit led by 2 elderly men who are helped by an assortment of characters. it's like returning to see old friends and it doesn't matter if you read the books out of order. The crimes in the ...

review 1: Not as good as some others, almost too heavily into the plot and too light on characters. Getting to be all about Bryant knowing things and everyone else running in circles waiting for him to solve the crime. Main plot is about rich property management type getting a theatre up a...

review 1: Well, Fowler keeps getting better at the mystery part of things. This book definitely tilted more in the direction of lots of plot twists over London history. Also, he started to up the humor with the two Daves, but they kind of faded off by the end of the book. I'm definitely in...
