Water. Water and the Thames play important roles in the latest mystery in the Bryant & May Peculiar Crimes Unit series by Christopher Fowler. Titled, Strange Tide, this novel requires all the skills of the PCU at a time when they are under scrutiny, and their reliance on Arthur Bryant is diminished because he seems to be losing his mind. The crime is bizarre, Bryant’s hallucinations are delightful, and the ultimate solution is satisfying. Fans of the series will be delighted with this installment. New readers can start here or anywhere in the series and find great character-based crime fiction.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
