Reviews

"Fabulously unorthodox . . . [Christopher Fowler] takes delight in stuffing his books with esoteric facts; together with a cast of splendidly eccentric characters [and] corkscrew plots, wit, verve and some apposite social commentary, they make for unbeatable fun."--The Guardian

"Winningly eccentric . . . The books are set in a skillful synthesis of a phantasmagorical earlier era and the modern age."--Financial Times

"The most delightfully, wickedly entertaining duo in crime fiction . . . Fowler's tale is a rich mix of laugh-out-loud lines, acerbic wit, obscure British history and a wonderfully puzzling story. Grade: A"--The Plain Dealer

"Fowler is even better than usual at getting readers to care about his squad of misfits."--Publishers Weekly

"Not even Arthur Bryant's alarming behavior can dampen the twelfth installment in the most joyously inventive mystery series of our time."--Kirkus Reviews

"Fascinating and intriguing . . . This book is definitely a standalone novel that keeps the reader absorbed in the story, and will make everyone want to go back and read them all. . . . This is a very solid story and a great addition to Fowler's long-running series. The mystery is fascinating and readers will definitely want to know what happens next. And for newcomers to the series, this will be an excellent place to start."--Suspense Magazine

"Fans of the Bryant and May series will welcome this latest installment with plenty of obscure historical details mixed with outré crimes and the banter of the PCU members. Newcomers will find plenty to enjoy as well without finding the amount of details included from earlier outings overwhelming."--Library Journal

"Witty with a dry sense of humor . . . finely plotted . . . complex and funny."--RT Book Reviews

"A fascinating investigation with lots of false leads and a plethora of historical factoids."--Mystery Scene
