Bryant & May on the Loose by Christopher Fowler
“The inmates at Pentonville prison were fond of inking themselves with fake Russian gang symbols, most of them poorly copied and misspelled. The one on Mac’s arm was actually a produce stamp for a soviet state farm…he.. was advertising turnips.” Mac is a pawn in the game of Mr Fox who may be just a social misfit with a penchant for collecting personal details, or he may be a serial killer or he may be the Horned God haunting the site of a pagan temple. Weaving London’s many layered history into another engaging mystery, Fowler welcomes us to the eclectic, eccentric world of the Peculiar Crimes Unit. Be warned, there are more in the series and you won’t be able to stop at one book!
