Journal Entry 3 by wingeponine38wing at Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Monday, January 29, 2018
I don’t usually grab one of my most recent acquisitions to read, but this one caught my eye and once I opened it I couldn’t put it down. It’s the first in the Bryant & May mystery series, and a good part of it is flashbacks to when they first started working together. These earlier parts take place during the Blitz so that was extra interesting for me – I’ve always admired the British for dealing with that as well as they did. Arthur Bryant and John May are interesting characters – opposites in many ways – and they complement each other. They could just as well have been at each other’s throats, but there’s another character for that – one who dislikes the pair and their sometimes unorthodox ways of investigating crimes.

Nine stars instead of ten because of the theatre setting. I love the live theatre, but not so much its behind-the-scenes workings, and there’s a lot of that in this book.

One of the best books I've read in a while!
A bomb rips through present-day London, tragically ending the crime-fighting partnership of Arthur Bryant and John May begun more than a half-century ago during another infamous bombing: the Blitz of World War II. Desperately searching for clues to the saboteur’s identity, May finds the notes his old friend kept of their very first case and a past that may have returned…with murderous vengeance. It was an investigation that began with the grisly murder of a pretty young dancer. In a city shaken by war, a faceless killer stalked London’s theater row, creating his own sinister drama. And it would take Bryant’s unorthodox techniques and May’s dogged police work to catch a fiend whose ability to escape detection seemed almost supernatural—a murderer who decades later may have returned to kill one of them…and won’t stop until he kills the other.
