Publisher's Summary

Long regarded as an anachronism, the Peculiar Crimes Unit is to be disbanded. For octogenarian detectives Arthur Bryant and John May, it seems retirement is now the only option. But then a headless body is found in a freezer, and a suspicious, gigantic figure has been spotted - dressed in deerskin and sporting antlers made of knives. It looks like the PCU are back in business...

Bryant and May On the Loose

I love the PCU books but think that this is the weakest of the lot, unfortunately. The various elements of the story don't seem to gel as well and the closure of the Mr. Fox storyline was a bit anticlimactic. As usual, however, Tim Goodman's narration is wonderful and adds great life to all the characters. Note that the "Publisher's Summary" is incorrect and describes "Bryant and May Off the Rails" (the previous book in the series) and not "Bryant and May on the Loose."

Too much bureaucracy

All the political bureaucracy about the admin side of the PCU is distracting from the mystery. I fast forwarded through about an hour of this book. The story has a very hard and dark ending. I love the narration

Bryant and May Addict!

Came across Bryant and May when one of the titles was on offer on Audible. So entertaining, great stories they are a classic double act, fast paced and great background information on London threaded throughout. Now i'm completely hooked and am working my way through from book two onwards, it's a shame Book 1 isn't on Audible. Tim Goodman's narration is outstanding, great character voices and he gets it right with the accents and is very consistent.

What a gem

Came across this by accident and am so pleased, I'm ignoring family and chores until I get to the end. The characters and narration are brilliant. Story may be a bit far fetched but I am enjoying the historical details and occasional laugh out loud humour. Can't wait to get the rest.
