Publisher's Summary

London’s wiliest detectives, Arthur Bryant and John May, are back on the case in this fiendishly clever new mystery. And when a cemetery becomes the scene of a crime, neither secrets - nor bodies - stay buried.

Romain Curtis sneaks into St. George’s Gardens one evening with his date, planning to show her the stars. A centuries-old burial ground, the small, quiet park is the perfect place to be alone. Yet the night takes a chilling turn when the two teenagers spy a strange figure rising from among the tombstones: a corpse emerging from the grave. Suffice it to say that wherever there’s a dead man walking, Bryant and May and the Peculiar Crimes Unit are never far behind.

As the PCU investigates the sighting, a second urgent matter requires their unusual brand of problem-solving. Seven ravens have gone missing from their historic home in the Tower of London, and legend has it that when the ravens disappear, England will fall. Bryant has been tasked with recovering the lost birds, but when Romain is suddenly found dead, the two seemingly separate mysteries start to intertwine - and point to a plot more sinister than anyone could ever imagine.

    "Marlevous historical fiction"

    The narrator allowed me to feel part of this mystery - not only a listener. The mystery is so intriguing that I had no hope of solving it myself. I'm Bryant's age so I easily identify with his techniques, emotions, and limitations.

    "Another Great Fowler Mystery"

    Highly recommend this series!!! Must read. series for mystery lovers. Bryant and May are interesting characters in this series, but Arthur Bryant keeps me in stitches. He's a character unlike any other in the literary world.

    "Narration doesn't do this one any favors"

    Just after I started listening to this book, a copy of the printed text fell into my lap quite by chance, so I read them together; first, I would listen to a chapter, and then I would read the same chapter. It was a very revealing experiment. Christopher Fowler's writing is full of humorous nuance, NONE of which comes across as narrated by Tim Goodman. His delivery is bombastic, his characterization is weak and he drags out the pronounciation of some words, making him sound like he is speaking with his mouth full. Large sections of the story slipped past me as I listened, only to be appreciated when I read the text. All in all, I enjoyed Fowler's work very much and will definitely get more of it - but just as definitely I will be reading, and not listening. At least not to Tim Goodman.

    Another of my favorites. Tim Goodman is the perfect narrator. Listened to them all. Perfect. Thank you Christopher Fowler.

    If you could sum up Bryant & May and the Bleeding Heart in three words, what would they be?

    Convoluted, scary, amusing

    I love the witty turns of phrase. Great story, lots of twists and turns


    Which character – as performed by Tim Goodman – was your favourite?

    Bryant and May - I cannot choose between them


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was indeed


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the whole series and am sorry this seems to be the last - though my credits may not disappear so quickly now:))
