Sorry about taking so long to journal these. Have limited the number of library books hanging around this month, and work not very busy, so hoping to get to reading them soon! Thank you for keeping them for me!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

You know what Jane Austen said about a little piece of ivory? That. OK, in a very different time and genre, but this is a great example of what can be done with a small group of characters stuck in a setting against their will - albeit by snow rather than social circumstance.

In the filing cabinets opposite were secret details of cases no other unit in the country had the ability to unravel. The PCU had earned the right to handle the kind of investigations no-one in the Metropolitan Police force had the faintest interest in solving. They had captured demons and devils, phantoms and monsters; not real ones, of course, mostly deluded loners who believed themselves invulnerable to the law. Individuals who had stolen, blackmailed and killed for tenebrous, private purposes, to protect themselves, to hide truths, to destroy enemies. Murder, Arthur Bryant insisted, was invariably a squalid, sad business driven by poverty and desperation, yet the cases passed to the Peculiar Crimes Unit had often been marked by paradox and absurdity. Sometimes they were the dream cases other detectives fantasised about resolving, but Bryant and May chose their staff with care, employing novices who were knowledgeable social misfits, in the same way that computer companies sometimes hired the very hackers who had attacked their clients from behind bedroom doors.

This was the fourth book in the Bryant & May series that I have read, and I found it an improvement on Seventy-Seven Clocks but not as good as Full Dark House or Ten-Second Staircase.

I enjoyed the goings-on in the PCU's offices in London much more than the crime that Bryant and May stumbled across in a snow-bound traffic jam on Dartmoor.
