Intricate. The sixteenth Peculiar Crimes Unit novel by Christopher Fowler is titled, The Lonely Hour. Arthur Bryant is addled and brilliant as always. Partner John May makes a mistake that will have serious consequences, and even Arthur may be unable to get the PCU out of a jam. The title refers to 4a.m., the time when a killer does his dirty deeds. The plot is intricate, and the familiar characters will delight fans of this series. New readers can start here or anywhere and find finely written crime fiction with clever plots and a cast of complex and interesting characters.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
