One night, Arthur Bryant witnesses a drunken lady coming out of a pub. The next morning, she is found dead at the exact spot where their paths crossed. Even more disturbingly, the pub has vanished and the street has changed.

Bryant is convinced that he saw them as they looked over a century before - is elderly detective losing his mind? Then it becomes clear that a number of women have met their ends in London pubs and the likeliest suspect seems to be a mental patient. But knowing who the killer is and catching him are two very different propositions.

As their new team at the Peculiar Crimes Unit goes in search of a madman, the octogenarian detectives ready themselves for the pub crawl of a lifetime, and come face to face with their own mortality... Download and start listening now!

    " Love this series. Funny & smart. I have listened to 2 - 10. Downloaded from Audible. The reader (Tim Goodman) does a brilliant job. "

    " I really like the characters in this series...wooly, professorial Arthur Bryant and dapper, sophisticated John May. I also enjoy the tidbits of British history and mythology. But the plots always leave me slightly dissatisfied. In this novel single, middle-aged women are getting killed in the middle of bustling pubs...a series of crimes that almost go unnoticed, until Arthur Bryant accidentally stumbles upon the case. "

    " This series is incredibly erudite, very clever. If you love London, you'll love these books. They have a definite humorous touch, which I usually find quite annoying, but Fowler is a remarkable writer who makes cuteness intellectually stimulating. "

    " I love this series. I'd temporarily forgotten about it, so now I have two more to catch up on - which will be interesting to see based on how this one ended. Bryant & May are a pair of elderly dectectives who are the senior pair at the Peculiar Crimes Unit, a special police unit set up during WWII to handle sensitive and odd cases. It's wonderful British humor, and some very odd mysteries. It helps to start with the first book in the series: Full Dark House. "
