Reviews

  • "Witty, engaging mix of crime drama and comedy that's also an esoteric history of London."

    THE SUN
  • "Off-kilter, witty and unorthodox...winningly eccentric...London, in all its non-homogenous, sprawling splendour, is as much a character as Fowler's sleuthing duo."

    Barry Forshaw, FINANCIAL TIMES
  • "Wonderful . . . not only are there eleven short stories featuring our elderly and eccentric detectives, but there are notes on all the regulars and also a divine cartoon of the Peculiar Crimes Unit premises . . . Fowler delivers a feast of cases with that slightly skew-whiff view. This really is great stuff"
