    eBook christian living.co ↠ The Water Room eBook â The Water Epub / water kindle, room pdf, The Water book, The Water Room PDF/EPUB45 stars Well this was significantly better than the first in the series No flashbacks set in the present but with loads of really interesting London history It helps of course that I myself live in a late Victorian terrace house originally built for railway workers as were the houses in the story I really enjoyed the dynamic between Bryant and May and loved the fact they ended the book double dating

    eBook christian living.co ↠ The Water Room eBook â The Water Epub / water kindle, room pdf, The Water book, The Water Room PDF/EPUBThis second book of the aptly named Peculiar Crimes Unit series featuring Arthur Bryant and John May involves odd death in London truly a character of the novel itself and esoteric knowledge about the city and its history than you might want to shake a stick at Since it happens to rain during most of the novel shaking a stick wouldn't accomplish muchAside from solving this mysterious death is it a murder? Bryant and May must also find a way to justify keeping the unit that has been their lives for a half century open and functioning as part of the MET Water figures prominently throughout this story as do the forgotten rivers of London those lost to decades if not centuries of development If you are looking for a straight forward police procedural Fowler's Bryant May series is likely not completely your cup of tea If you like a big piece of

    eBook christian living.co ↠ The Water Room eBook â The Water Epub / water kindle, room pdf, The Water book, The Water Room PDF/EPUBI'm working my way through these Peculiar Crime Unit mysteries and enjoying them immenselyThe star character is Detective Arthur Bryant an elderly eccentric who is unfailingly rude to everybody and regularly consults psychics witches and other unconventional typesDetective John May Bryant's partner is less unhinged but still willing to go the extra weird mileThe rest of the PCU are a group of misfits including a guy with a spatial perception problem meaning he trips over everythingThe mysteries themselves are very clever and very odd They are also very dark For all the comedy inherent in the setup these books are not played for yuksThe Water Room has a lot of social observation much

    eBook christian living.co ↠ The Water Room eBook â The Water Epub / water kindle, room pdf, The Water book, The Water Room PDF/EPUBThe premise grabs you an elderly woman who never leaves her house is found dead in her house perfectly dry and dressed for a party with lungs full of river water How can it be? With no clues to go on it's the perfect opportunity for a couple of grizzly crabby octogenarian detectives of the Peculiar Crimes UnitThe two predictably uncover deeply covered clues and meet odd people like witches along the way in solving this impossible mysteryThis novel was not exactly my cup of tea If you want a straight police procedural this is not for you Although the murder mystery is itself interesting so much of the novel seems to be spent dealing with other things all of them eventually lead up to the ending but the experience i had was trying to listen to someone sing in a hall where everyone else is screaming I wanted the plot to move along rather than get entangled in the crabbiness of the characters and the author's intent to endear them to us with their dry wit Every page seeme

    eBook christian living.co ↠ The Water Room eBook â The Water Epub / water kindle, room pdf, The Water book, The Water Room PDF/EPUBWell that was fun Not for the multiple victims mind but being along for the ride as the crazy detective duo attempt to solve what appears to be 3 completely unrelated murders They aren't called the Peculiar Crimes Unit for nothing This ranks up there for peculiar that's for sure Other than living on the same street seeing how the murders could be related at all was the real mystery It takes a person who likes to think outside the box to see fragments of ideas and actions that

    eBook christian living.co ↠ The Water Room eBook â The Water Epub / water kindle, room pdf, The Water book, The Water Room PDF/EPUBThe Peculiar Crimes Unit of London's Metropolitan Police handles some very peculiar crimes indeed For example in The Water Room we have the case of an elderly woman who drowns in river water in her basement but there is no water in the room and no evidence that the body had been moved How did the woman's dead body dressed to go out shopping and seated on a chair in her basement end up with filthy river water in her throat? That's just the kind of uestion for which Arthur Bryant and John May thrive on finding answersBryant and May are the two cranky uirky detectives who have been partners for fifty years and who are the very heart and soul of the Peculiar Crimes Unit It seems only fair since they are very peculiar detectivesIn this instance Bryant intuits that Ruth Singh the dead woman in the basement did not die a natural death and so he and May and other members of their unit set out to prove that a murder has occurred even though there is no appa

    eBook christian living.co ↠ The Water Room eBook â The Water Epub / water kindle, room pdf, The Water book, The Water Room PDF/EPUBI wasn't overly impressed with the first book in the series but I like Fowler well enough to give it another try Again though the aging detectives failed to wow me Nothing technically is wrong with the book it's got a good mystery the writing is solid the characters are pretty well developedit just lacks that certain something Again with this one partly is it the narrator's fault Tom Goodman's reading is just kind of off his impressions are off his accents are strange his british accent is really odd and generally I love british accents the way fat kids love cake Fowler's erudite knowledge of London and of mythology both subjects of a particular interest to me are the best parts of the book He has used them in the first book and once here to entertain as much as throw in
