Publisher's summary

The members of London's Peculiar Crimes Unit are on the case again when a dog walker is found dead. The method of the death is odd...the killer had no way in - or out - and the dog is nowhere to be seen. But the 'hows' and 'whys' of the murder are not the only mysteries, and it seems very likely that the killer is preparing to strike again.

Not your usual Parks and Gardens book

Wild Chamber, the latest Bryant and May book and as fascinating as ever in one of my favourite series. Each book can be read as a standalone but I believe for most enjoyment they are best read in order, or at least begun earlier in the series. A vast history of the Peculiar Crimes Unit and the various relationships of its' members and associates has built up over many years and adds immeasurably to the overall pleasure. Some particular comments or unexpected characters in a book as far along as number fourteen may seem strange to a new reader.

A long and complex investigation here, involving several murders, but that is what we have come to expect and it didn't disappoint. I am delighted that Arthur Bryant has survived his treatment and enjoyed the way that he uses his 'hallucinations' for some apt references from the past to help his thinking fall into place.

This time we also learned about the many London Parks and green spaces to add to the wealth of London lore we gain from every single book. It was also a warning to keep our attention drawn on the threat that real life developers are posing to these precious green spaces and our need to protect them.

Tim Goodman as always the perfect narrator, he has portrayed every single one of the many characters become old familiar friends .

Thank you, Mr Fowler,sir, you are a master craftsman and I suspect there are echoes of yourself in Arthur, although hopefully not the hoarding of food in your pockets. Long may it continue.

Great Series - fun characters, interesting plots

I stumbled on the Bryant and May series in the library (public) and had to read them all. This is the latest and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The reader does a super good job - which isn't easy as there are so many voices and they are all British.

I like wry British humor, and there is plenty in this book, as well as the others. I've read all the rest, and think this may be the best of them all. Also, the fun way the administrator is portrayed warms the heart of anyone who has worked for a clueless, bumbling boss. Most of us have had that experience, and the memo at the beginning warms my heart.

They just keep getting better.

This is my favorite detective series ever. Each character is so wonderfully developed and the character development is brought to life even more by the wonderful voices done by the narrator.every time one of these and I feel like I'm going to miss my family.

Love it

I love the whole Bryant and May series. I learn some good London history while enjoying a mystery that I can't figure out until the end.

I like this series

I like British. I like police procedurals. Combining these in the Peculiar Crimes Unit gives me the best of both. This book focuses, more than some in the series, on solving murders. The fascinating histories color the police work leading the reader to surprises. Then. quietly, the ending spells out.

Murder in the park.

Another wonderful mystery with historical insight and creativity. Bryant is intellectually challenging and May a dear, dear friend whose loyalty to Bryant warms any heart.

Not his best

Yet I still love nestling down into a good B&M ! But it was very muddled during first half but the ending delivered.

Great reader.

Good story, but slow narration

Some parts made me laugh out loud. Narrator talked so slow I listened at 1.5X regular speed.

A worthy, familiar entry to a favorite series.

Tim Goodman did a great job, as always. He brings the author's characters to life. While this is not one of my favorite stories, it is still quite inventive, and I certainly crave more.
