Wild Chamber

1 Mins read

Christopher Folwer’s Bryant and May series reaches its 12th novel, but seems as fresh as ever. The powers that be want to close down the Peculiar Crimes Unit but, clearly, that would be folly. Why? Because who else is going to solve all the bizarre crimes in London that nobody else can handle? Here, a boy is killed in strange circumstances, his debt-strapped father disappears, and later his mother is murdered in one of London’s private gardens – securely locked at the time. The brilliantly idiosyncratic detectives Bryant and May are on the scene to unravel a case in which London itself, once again, becomes an intrinsic character too. Read the full review here.
