Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"London's perpetually-in-jeopardy Peculiar Crimes Unit gets a reprieve in Fowler's excellent 10th mystery featuring senior detectives Arthur Bryant and John May (after 2012's The Memory of Blood). Oskar Kasavian, the Home Office security supervisor who oversees the PCU, hires Bryant and May unofficially to deal with a personal problem. His much-younger wife, Sabira, has begun acting strangely, and with Kasavian due to take the helm of a major European antiterror initiative, it's vital that any scandal be avoided. When Sabira insists that devils are out to get her, the two sleuths take her fears seriously. They look into a possible tie to the death of Amy O'Connor, who dropped dead in a church from unknown causes shortly after two children identified her as a witch and plotted to kill her. In the light of the challenges that Fowler has given his heroes in prior books, it's particularly impressive that he manages to surpass himself once again. Agent: Howard Morhaim, Howard Morhaim Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
