Reviews
"Let's talk about guilty pleasures. . . . A historic burial ground like St. George's Garden, scene of the unfortunate incident of resurrection, is right up [Arthur Bryant's] dark alley. And mine."--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Delectably droll . . . criminally underappreciated . . . guaranteed to amuse . . . [Bryant & May are] endearing throwbacks to a time when this genre was brainy and pure. They are the last of a breed and they know it. . . . Their very credibility puts quaint old Bryant & May in a class of their own."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"Fans of the series will enjoy the continuing travails of these two long-suffering octogenerian friends and their fellow officers. Newcomers will appreciate the twists and turns of the case as well as the many details from the odd corners of one of the world's great cities."--Library Journal

"Endearingly eccentric . . . intriguing."--Publishers Weekly

"Hilarious . . . a charming and intriguing mystery mixed with marvelous characters. [Christopher] Fowler's snarky writing elevates what could be dull or routine and makes it a true joy to read."--RT Book Reviews

"Make Bryant & May and the Bleeding Heart the next book you read. . . . These stories are witty, challenging, engrossing, informative and incredibly well written. . . . Picture a television series that is a rough mash-up of Law & Order, The X-Files and Monty Python's Flying Circus. . . . I sensed Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ed McBain and Agatha Christie nodding in approval. . . . [Fowler's] latest book contains some of his best writing."--Bookreporter
