9780553815528: Full Dark House: (Bryant & May Book 1)

When a bomb devastates the office of London's most unusual police unit and claims the life of its oldest detective, Arthur Bryant, his surviving partner John May searches for clues to the bomber's identity. His search takes him back to the day the detectives first met as young men in 1940.

In Blitz-ravaged London, a beautiful dancer rehearsing for a sexy, sinister production of 'Orpheus In The Underworld' is found without her feet. Bryant & May's investigation plunges them into a bizarre gothic mystery, where a faceless man stalks terrified actors and death strikes in darkness. Tracking their quarry through the blackout, searching for a murderer who'll stop at nothing to be free of a nightmare, the duo unwittingly follow the same path Orpheus took when leading Euridyce from the shadows of Hell.

Back in the present day, John May starts to wonder if their oldest adversary might be the killer who took his partner's life. He must work alone to solve a puzzle that began over half a century earlier...

In a war-shaken city of myths, rumours and fear, Bryant & May discover that a house is not always a home, nothing is as it appears, the most cunning criminals hide in plain sight, and the devil has all the best tunes. Dark drama and black comedy combine as Bryant & May take centre stage in their first great case.

Recensione:

"A bizarre dark comedy of an investigation... bawdy, unpredictable and at times hilarious, with a cast of wonderful grotesques" ( Guardian)

"As filled with tricks and sleights of hand as a magician's sleeve... witty, charismatic, occasionally touching and with a genuine power to thrill" (Joanne Harris)

"Fowler shocks and frightens while making us laugh out loud. An original, erudite and exciting whodunnit" ( Good Book Guide)

"An evocatively reverential tribute to the genre...the clash of temperaments between Bryant and May makes them great detectives" ( Time Out)

"The writing is as ever fluid and pacey, the characterisation deft and the plot fresh and ingenious" ( Independent on Sunday)

Descrizione del libro:

The matchless team of Inspectors Bryant and May investigate a series of macabre murders against the eerie urban chaos of London during the Blitz.
