'Bryant & May and the Burning Man' is the 12th book in the series. Christopher Fowler has a great series going with no signs of slowing down.

It's the week before Guy Fawkes Night and a new financial scandal has protestors out in the streets in large crowds. Hidden among the rioters is a murderer, hiding his crimes in fire. The first victim is a homeless man killed by accident when a building is set on fire. When others begin to die, it looks like someone has an agenda. The problem is that there doesn't seem to be anything linking them together. Further complicating things are Bryant's quirky style which seems to leave him faltering a bit more. Can the Peculiar Crimes Unit stay open and solve the case?

I haven't read too many books in this series, but I love the ones I've read. I love the oddball inellectuals who have their own way of sniffing out criminals. I love Bryant's meandering knowledge that almost always leads to cracking a case, and May's steady support and dependence. I have more of these to read and I can't wait.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine, Bantam, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
