This is the third book I've listened to about the Peculiar Crimes Unit. There was just a bit too much history in this one, but apart from that it was compelling and I had to listen whenever I could to get to the end. I like the way the books are related and follow on from each other, and have become fond of the characters. The narrator is very good.

What a delightful series this is by Christopher Fowler, and Tim Goodman is an inspired narrator. The aging Peculiar Crimes Unit detectives embark upon yet another arcane mystery, and Fowler sprinkles their progress with fascinating trivia about London history, as usual. The plot of this installment moves a little slowly and meanders a bit, but that is in keeping with the elderly protagonists and may have been cleverly intentional. They begin with investigating a murder that appears to be impossible and their progress is, as always, an interesting combination of May's logic and Bryant's deductive intuition. The PCU is finally slated for true termination and the eccentric group is challenged to come up with solutions rather quickly. I enjoyed every minute of this book and will happily proceed to the next one, which is downloading as I write this review. Thank you, Mr. Fowler and Mr. Goodman. You are a terrific team.

Wonderful narration of yet another intriguing story. About to look for another Christopher Fowler gem.

Tim Goodman produces excellent character voices but he frequently mispronounces words, which is very irritating.
