    [The Memory of Blood] EBOOK / KINDLE I am determined to read all the Bryant and May Peculiar Crimes Unit books This series is so delightful and is somewhat like the Nero Wolfe books in that the story is secondary to the perfectly drawn characters The author is a master of the ingenious and slightly cock eyed style of writing that makes each book a joy even if the plot is totally insane and could never happen in the real worldIn this book the Peculiar Crimes Unit is called in

The Memory of Blood

review The Memory of Blood Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB On a rainswept London night the wealthy unscrupulous Robert Kramer hosts a party in his penthouse just off Trafalgar Suare But something is wrong The atmosphere is uncomfortable the guests are on edge And when Kramer's new young wife goes to check on their baby boy she finds the nursery door locked from the insideBreaking in the Kramers are faced with an open window an empty cot and a grotesue antiue puppet of Mr Punch lying on the floor It seems that. Ninth in the Bryant May uirky mystery series set in London and revolving around two detectives who should have retired years agoMy TakeIt s a dive into the history of Punch and Judy theatre and it s fascinating as Salterton takes us back into its origins and purpose as well as who the cast is actually meant to represent There s also a brief foray into censorship in London theatres by the Lord Chamberlain and historic bits of stage magic It s very much like today when a new bit of technology arises and everyone has to play with itEach installment in the series has explored various aspects of history particularly London s and I believe that Oskar Kasavian s vendetta is part of the overall series arc along with Bryant and May s pending retirement The series has also been Fowler s soapbox as he expresses his own views on society politics policework the human conditionand the Disneyfication of the West End I gotta say I agree with most everything he s said so far in the series And it s why that third person omniscient point of view is so useful as it allows him to include those opinionsIt s the characters in the PCU that make this so much fun to read well that and Fowler s impossible mysteriesFowler makes such great use of the report it s a cleverly disguised info dump to fill the reader in on the characters and the back story of the Peculiar Crimes Unit It seems that Fowler had a presentiment about Wikileaks as well lol I loved Fowler s note that the University of London is trying to offer a course that explains Bryant s methods lolI can get into thisClutter either mental or physical is the sign of a healthy curiosityI am SO healthyOnce you get past the report we start at the end with a modified reverse chronology plot beat and segue into a locked room mystery that ends with a twist of a surprise ending And yet as difficult as this was to figure out as intriguing as was Punch s history and with that connection Meera makes toward the end The Victoria Vanishes 6 he should ve left it alone but all that poking and attacking which only makes me want to dive into The Invisible Code 10 it was a bit tediousBryant is fascinatingly rude I m taking notesConsidering who the murderer turns out to be who was digging through Baine s briefcaseFor a bit of domestic drama Bryant has lost his case for his Chalk Hill factory abode and has to move I can t wait to see how he fits in to his next homeThe StoryFor the crew of the New Strand Theatre the play The Two Murderers seems less performance than prophecy when a cast party ends in the shocking death of the theater owner s son The crime scene is most unusual even for Bryant and May In a locked bedroom without any trace of fingerprints or blood the only sign of disturbance is a gruesome life size puppet of Mr Punch laying on the floor Everyone at the party is a suspect including the corrupt producer the rakish male lead the dour set designer and the assistant stage manager who is the wild daughter of a prominent government officialIt s this last fact that threatens the Peculiar Crimes Unit s investigation as the government s Home Office wary of the team s eccentric methods seeks to throw them off the case But the nimble minds of Bryant and May are not so easily deterredDelving into the history of the London theater and the disturbing origins of Punch and Judy the detectives race to find the maniacal killer before he reaches his even deadlier final actThe CharactersArthur Bryant and John May are senior detectives who should have retired but they enjoy their work too much And besides what else would they do The incredibly rude and eccentric Bryant has handled almost every type of case there is in a most odd manner using psychics healers New Age fringe dwellers etc Victor is his ancient Mini Cooper Alma Sorrowbridge is Bryant s West Indian housemate and his former landladyMay is the socially ept half of the team who loves dressing well and loves the ladies Brigitte is the divorced Frenchwoman May fears he s losing Jane Upton is his ex wife currently in an asylum He is estranged from his son Alex to whom his granddaughter April fled Bryant and May Off the Rails Gwen Kaye is his married sisterThe rest of the Peculiar Crimes Unit PCU wasone of seven experimental units created during World War II Since 1945 the PCU has been under fire by politicians and rescued by

support for the PCU and has a reputation as an old school copper He also has a thing for Longbright Police Constables Meera Mangeshkar Colin Bimsley and Fraternity Ducaine are also uite loyal although Meera has anger management issues and clashes with Bryant and May as well as filing complaints against them Bimsley s father and uncle are also former PCU Bimsley does have Diminished Spatial
