Wild Chamber

Parks. Fans of the Peculiar Crimes Unit (PCU) mystery series by Christopher Fowler will love the latest installment titled, Wild Chamber. There’s a killer in London’s parks and the PCU team is on the case under pressure from those who want to eliminate the unit. We learn about the title on p. 201 “Remember I told you that the parks were once referred to as London’s wild chambers? They provide the opportune locations, they’re free zones where anything can happen.” As with the earlier installments in this series, Bryant and May have unorthodox ways of solving cases. Fowler also writes some sentences worth reading more than once, including: p. 120 “Colin, stop trying to use unopened parts of your brain.” And: p. 136 “Mr. Dasgupta thinks the old lady is a few ducks short of a funfair…” Rest assured that Bryant and May solve the murders in style, and Fowler is hard at work on the next installment.
