Summary

The year is 1969, and 10 guests are about to enjoy a weekend at Tavistock Hall. The guests also include detectives Arthur Bryant and John May - undercover, in disguise and tasked with protecting Monty Hatton-Jones, a whistle-blower turning Queen’s evidence in a massive bribery trial. 

The house’s owner - a penniless, dope-smoking aristocrat - is intent on selling the estate to a secretive millionaire, but the weekend has only just started when the millionaire goes missing, and murder is on the cards....

Entertaining as ever

Thoroughly enjoyed it but did guess the twist early on. Quite agree with the voices being old for the prequel but it did mean I knew the characters immediately. The narration is superb, a joy to listen to him.

Delightful Country House Murder pastiche

Finally the superb Bryant and May get to do a traditional country house murder investigation. It’s all mad, over-the-top, unbelievable and very funny. One of the most joyful of the whole series. Bryant does his secret creeping around while wearing tap dancing shoes!

Hall of Mirrors

This was so good, so funny and I loved the chapter references of 1960s song titles. Brilliant! Thank you Christopher Fowler and Tim Goodman. Christine

What Fun!

I am a huge fan of Bryant and May and the author Christopher Fowler. I was delighted that a new book had arrived and it did not disappoint. Set in the 60's it is a bit of an homage to Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and the like. It is set in a stately home during a house party. There is a murder and the detectives have to solve it by Monday Morning any way I can't say more but it has lots of red herrings and the plot twists and turns. It was great fun especially all the cultural references to the 60's .I really hope the author will write more about the PCU's old cases I think there is lots more to enjoy. The narrator as always is excellent he does a fantastic job here not only with Arthur and John but in this book all the upper crust characters as well.

Bryant and May—brilliant again!!

A fresh, smart and humorous rendition of the country house murder in the company of Bryant and May. Operating outside their milieu of London with all her history and complexity, they are at a disadvantage.
Their characters are consistent with their beloved older counterparts. A pleasure in any location.

This was a lot of fun. It sounds easy -- a weekend in the country
protecting a witness scheduled
for court. Bryant and May, on their own are very funny. I am a big fan of these two and a I think this book is a good introduction
to their peculiar policing.

Slow starter. Narration is good.

Overall, not a bad story. It does drag on and one almost loses interest, but then it picks up again. If you want a long, long story and don't mind the pace, you may enjoy it.

Always wonderful

This was a lovely detour from the regular antics of the aging duo. I do want someone to promise me that it does not mark the last account of those antics

Could listen forever.

I am always left feeling sad when I have gobbled up another Bryant and May book. I only pre-order three authors and Christopher Fowler is one of them. Tim Goodman is the wonderful narrator that brings all the characters in this series to life. Perfection. I listen to every word.
