The Memory of Blood

by Christopher Fowler

My two favorite geriatric detectives are back, and the Peculiar Crimes Unit has its hands full. There are two mysteries in this latest Bryant & May outing:

1. The young lady writing Bryant’s memoirs is murdered.
2. A series of murders are committed and tied to the owner of a local theatre company.

In many ways, this is classic Bryant & May. I love that Fowler has brought the gang back to the theatre, the setting for the first mystery in the series. As usual, the mystery is strange and convoluted and incorporates all sorts of arcane London history.

As always, a great escape!
