What a treat - a new Bryant and May

Wonderful to have the latest Bryant and May on Audible - the two aged detectives who began together in the 40's and are still solving crimes in the 21st century. This is the ninth book in the series so it may be helpful to listen to earlier ones like "The Water Room" or "Seventy Seven Clocks" to get used to the characters, but this book will certainly stand on its own.

Every book brings us a mystery with a central theme and strange and intriguing facts about it - this time the history, myths and anecdotes of the "Punch and Judy Show" and Mr Punch's arrogant evil is well explored in this marvellous twisting tale.

Meanwhile the Peculiar Crimes Unit continues to fight for its existence against the devious Home Office Security and we still cannot be sure it will survive. The team is gradually expanding and we get more involved with their different personalities and interaction.

Tim Goodman is the perfect narrator for this series, all his characters sound just right and his particular irresponsible, grumpy, but very likeable Arthur Bryant could not possibly be bettered.

Best one yet

Would you consider the audio edition of Bryant & May and the Memory of Blood to be better than the print version?

This is the first time I have listened to an audio version in this series . All of the earlier books were read in print form. Sometimes this series gets a little hard to follow, listening to it makes you slow down and hear every word. I loved it!


What does Tim Goodman bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

His reading brings the characters to life and makes them even easier to picture in the minds eye.
