BRYANT & MAY: Strange Tide


BRYANT & MAY: Strange Tide

CHRISTOPHER FOWLER    Book Number: 86990    Product format: Hardback

The Peculiar Crimes Unit faces its most baffling case yet, and if Bryant and May can't rise to the challenge, the entire unit may go under. Near the Tower of London, the body of a woman has been discovered chained to a stone post and left to drown. Curiously, only one set of footprints lead to the tragic spot. 'The Bride of the Tide' as the London press gleefully dubs her has the PCU stumped. Arthur Bryant wonders if the answer to the mystery lies in the mythology of the Thames itself. The venerable detective seems to be losing his grip on reality and rapidly descends from merely muddled to one stop short of Barking, hallucinating that he has travelled back in time to solve the case. As more bodies are pulled from the river's depths, his partner and the rest of the PCU find themselves in over their heads. Fiendishly fun and rich in London lore here is a deadpan, sly and inventive novel with esoteric facts and eccentric characters. 436pp. Remainder mark.
