9780553385533: Full Dark House

A bomb rips through present-day London, tragically ending the crime-fighting partnership of Arthur Bryant and John May begun more than a half-century ago during another infamous bombing: the Blitz of World War II. Desperately searching for clues to the saboteur’s identity, May finds the notes his old friend kept of their very first case and a past that may have returned…with murderous vengeance. It was an investigation that began with the grisly murder of a pretty young dancer. In a city shaken by war, a faceless killer stalked London’s theater row, creating his own sinister drama. And it would take Bryant’s unorthodox techniques and May’s dogged police work to catch a fiend whose ability to escape detection seemed almost supernatural—a murderer who decades later may have returned to kill one of them…and won’t stop until he kills the other.

Recensione:

"An absolutely riveting account of London during the Blitz."— Booklist

"Atmospheric, hugely beguiling and as filled with tricks and sleights of hand as a magician's sleeve...it is English gothic at its eccentric best; a combination of Ealing comedy and grand opera: witty, charismatic, occasionally touching and with a genuine power to thrill." —Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat

"A first class thriller, but don't expect any sleep." — Sunday Telegraph

"The writing is as ever fluid and pacey, the characterization deft and the plot fresh and ingenious." — Independent on Sunday

"The intrigues of the theater murders, which decimate the cast, create considerable drama..... The dynamic between May and Bryant makes for compelling reading"— Publishers Weekly

“How many locked-room puzzles can the duo unlock before their Peculiar Crimes Unit is disbanded? Many more, one hopes.” — Kirkus Reviews
“A madcap mystery that’s completely crazy and great fun.” — Los Angeles Times

“Chris Fowler is a master of the classical form.” — New Y ork Times Book Review

L'autore:

Christopher Fowler is the acclaimed author of the award-winning  Full Dark House and nine other Peculiar Crimes Unit mysteries:  The Water Room, Seventy-Seven Clocks, Ten Second Staircase, White Corridor, The Victoria Vanishes, Bryant & May on the Loose, Bryant & May off the Rails, The Memory of Blood, and  The Invisible Code. He lives in London, where he is at work on his next Peculiar Crimes Unit novel.
