Bryant & May always deliver a great mystery.
I can't get enough of them. I am hooked on C Fowler.

I don't like to go into plots, because I believe in books as unspoiled territory waited for the reader to explore and deflower it, as may be.
However I will make a comment on the performance. The character of Bryant is spot on; he is the voice and soul of Bryant, a cantankerous and moldy genius as perfectly conceived by his author as any of the great fictional detectives ever born. The voice of May, however, is almost, almost, insulting to the character. There is no subtlety, no finesse, no reality to this fictional character. He is portrayed as a bitter, whiney old man, in an effort which is little to no resemblance to the May I've read into creation in my head, and I'm guessing is the same for my fellow devotees to this couple of true characters, who deserve better.
Other characters are victims of the same water washing, but for the most part their voices aren't as angrifying as the deconstruction of my May, a gentleman and fierce friend of the oddball thought process that is Bryant. He's no Watson, as Watson
