Flashback. The fifteenth installment in the Peculiar Crimes Unit series by Christopher Fowler springs a flashback on readers as we return to the lives of Arthur Bryant and John May in 1969. In the novel titled, Hall of Mirrors, Bryant and May are assigned to be sure that a prosecution witness shows up for trial. The witness insists on spending a weekend at a manor house in the country, where Bryant is a fish out of water. When there’s a murder, and the house party is trapped at Tavistock Hall, it’s up to Bryant and May to solve the mystery and save their skins, or at least their jobs. Funny as always, and well-plotted, the mystery is interesting and the characters eccentric and terrific as always.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
