The unthinkable has happened at London's Peculiar Crimes Unit. In the depths of winter, a member of staff has been found murdered, and everyone who works there is suddenly a suspect.

But Arthur Bryant and John May, the eccentric elderly detectives who run London's strangest crime division, aren't on hand to solve the crime. They've ventured into the heart of the English countryside, only to become stranded on a desolate snowbound section of road.

As the blizzard worsens, Bryant and May attempt to solve the crime long distance using only their mobile phones. Unfortunately, their situation is about to get very much worse. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Great characters combined with an excellent mystery, lots of surprises and the usual quality I have come to expect from a Christopher Fowler novel. A locked room mystery with twists. Fowler is my favourite crime writer! There is an element of Dirk Gently about Arthur Bryant and his approach to detection. I love the Bryant and May mysteries and highly recommend them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 2/3/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Graham | 1/28/2014

    " lessons on London. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scilla | 1/26/2014

    " The Peculiar Crimes Unit is closed for the week to allow for upgrades of the computer systems. Bryant and May go off to a convention of psychics and get caught in a snowstorm, and the about to retire pathologist is found murdered in the locked morgue with the corpse of a beautiful young woman. To complicate matters for Bryant and May, besides cell phone calls from the PCU, they find a murdered man in one of the trucks stuck in the snow with them, and another beautiful young woman with her son are being tracked by a suspected killer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 1/22/2014

    " This was the funnest (and funniest) mystery I've ever read. And I've read 4! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Louise | 1/18/2014

    " A slow book. Disjointed and not very clever. The younger generations of police and investigators (which includes anyone born after the Great War!) cannot manage to solve anything on their own. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 1/14/2014

    " I love this series. It is very quirky and extremely British. Bryant and May are such anachronisms; I enjoy them both. A lovely twist on a crime novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 1/8/2014

    " Two mysteries in one on this one. A great back and forth. Trapped in a snowstorm with a killer...what are Bryant and May to do? Solve it of course! I'm trying to ration them, I've only got two left before I'm out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Priscilla | 12/6/2013

    " One of my favorite Christopher Fowler books thus far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/4/2013

    " An enjoyably quirky mystery with eccentric characters and better than average plotting. A fun series for light reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith Kerr | 12/1/2013

    " Enjoyed this fast read for my mystery book club. Two plots going at once made for a good story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 11/23/2013

    " I love the Bryant and May mysteries. I've read them all in a span of about two weeks and have loved every one of them!!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 11/21/2013

    " This is another Bryant and May mystery that I very much enjoyed reading. Would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys weird books and interesting plots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 11/20/2013

    " I read #1 & 2 then accidentally skipped to this one, #5! But I think it's going to be ok. Again, I was kept guessing to the end and I read a lot of mysteries and have gotten quite good at figuring out who done it. NOT so with the Peculiar Crimes Mysteries! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Missy | 11/19/2013

    " My least favorite in the series. Not sure I'll read another after this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren Munoz | 9/5/2013

    " This series has amazing reviews, but I didn't find this that entertaining at all. I though the mystery was sort of lame, I didn't like the detective characters very much, and I thought the writing was just ok. Maybe other books in the series are good - I doubt I'll ever bother to find out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa C | 11/1/2012

    " Another fun book. I particularly liked the double storyline. And I can honestly say, I didn't see either end coming. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura Lee | 9/10/2012

    " Not my cup of tea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sian Jones | 3/30/2012

    " A solid but bland mystery, though a damned sight better than "Ten Second Staircase". However, I can only recommend this one for folks who've already fallen a bit in love with Bryant and May and the Peculiar Crimes Unit. I'm sticking around out of affection only. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/17/2012

    " Great mystery - didn't see THAT resolve coming! Wonderful series I am very much enjoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey | 1/15/2012

    " So much better than the one before it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 12/8/2011

    " I also enjoyed this Fowler mystery. The old gentlemen, who are able to solve the oddest of mysteries have found their way to my heart. A bit too emotional? maybe, but I always will believe in them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 11/7/2011

    " This was my first Bryant and May experience, and I'm hooked! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 De | 10/22/2011

    " I read the first few chapters, then the last few, skipped middle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 3/21/2011

    " Locked door mysteries are so fun-especially in the extraordinary hands of Mr. Fowler. The twists and turns in this romp are such that i highly recommend Not reading the end of the book while on the treadmill-I nearly feel off the damn thing! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue T | 2/4/2011

    " Maybe I would have enjoyed this book more if I'd started from the beginning of the series, but I felt that there wasn't a single character I could relate to in the entire book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 1/26/2011

    " I like the idea behind the plots in this book, but somehow it seems like less happened in this installment than in previous books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 1/20/2011

    " Enjoyable! Not so gripping that I need to rush out and read the other books in the series just yet, but when I want another slowish, atmospheric crime novel with amusing dialogue and pleasantly eccentric characters I'll definitely head back to book 1 and meander through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 11/3/2010

    " Another fun mystery from the PCU. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 11/2/2010

    " This series has amazing reviews, but I didn't find this that entertaining at all. I though the mystery was sort of lame, I didn't like the detective characters very much, and I thought the writing was just ok. Maybe other books in the series are good - I doubt I'll ever bother to find out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 9/4/2010

    " Two separate mysteries to solve. Both kept me guessing. Can you ask anything more of a slightly whimsical crime novel? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colleen | 9/3/2010

    " this is a great Bryant and May with the usual "supernatural" element and I felt, a bit more suspense then usual "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 8/30/2010

    " Two mysteries in one on this one. A great back and forth. Trapped in a snowstorm with a killer...what are Bryant and May to do? Solve it of course! I'm trying to ration them, I've only got two left before I'm out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 8/9/2010

    " Much smoother and faster-paced than some of the previous books in the series. Enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janette | 6/26/2010

    " This seemed more of a "normal" mystery compared to all the others. There were a few twists that I wasn't expecting and it was weird like the others, but not as weird. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ralph | 6/2/2010

    " The main characters--Arthur Bryant and John May are cranky,old, retro, unusual detectives solving obscure crimes with their staff in the "Peculiar Crimes Unit"---this would make a great TV or movie series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 4/20/2010

    " The Peculiar Crimes Unit is a favorite of a friend and she recommended these books by Christopher Fowler. I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped to, but it was fine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 3/21/2010

    " I am now a fan of Bryant and May! These two ocogenarian detectives are witty, wise and very creative. I shall read all of these books! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Delane | 3/10/2010

    " I read the first few chapters, then the last few, skipped middle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 3/1/2010

    " It was interesting and the characters were unique for the most part. I'd read another. "
