Product Details


“The murders are certainly macabre, but the best fun is running all over the city with these amiable partners, meeting the denizens of the night and poking in this vast repository of ghoulish secrets.”—The New York Times Book Review
“With wild twists and turns and a cast of unique characters, Bryant & May: The Lonely Hour is sure to excite fans old and new. There’s no crime duo like them anywhere else, they truly are one of a kind.”—Suspense magazine

“An irresistible adventure starring Arthur Bryant and John May, the oldest police detectives in London . . . The camaraderie between these two old partners is always a pleasure to behold. And, as always, Fowler offers us a king’s ransom in strange, captivating facts about the hidden corners of London’s geography and history.”The Seattle Times  

“The members of the Peculiar Crimes Unit settle in to another round of doing what they do best in present-day London: creating chaos while bringing an unusually single-minded killer to book. . . . Complications ensue along with the wackiest digressions in the business, at least one gobsmacking coincidence, and two deaths that will catch even the most devoted fans of this wacky franchise by surprise. . . . The devil is in the details, and Fowler’s details are hilariously devilish.”Kirkus Reviews

“Exceptional . . . Fowler maintains suspense. . . . Bryant and May’s decades-old partnership is tested as never before. . . . This whydunit is the epitome of an intelligent page-turner.”Publishers Weekly  (starred review)

“Fowler’s seventeenth installment in the series . . . has all the idiosyncrasies and dark humor of its predecessors but stands alone well. Perfect for fans of police procedurals with nontraditional, especially older, detectives.”Library Journal
