Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition paperback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  Unread.  Some light tanning to pages and slight signs of wear to covers.  The only fault of note is a one inch tear one third of the way down the leading edge of the final page.

SYNOPSIS:  “Time has been called on the Peculiar Crimes Unit. But as its elderly detectives Arthur Bryant and John May contemplate retirement, a grisly discovery is made near King’s Cross: a decapitated body in a shop freezer. Then a second corpse is found. Again, minus its head.

And something decidedly strange is upsetting the area’s property developer too. A figure straight out of England’s mythic past – half-man, half beast, covered in deer skin and sporting antlers made of knives – has been seen stalking the area’s building sites at night.

Freed up from the system but with limited resources and even less time, it seems the PCU are back in business. The search for missing body parts leads Bryant and May to London’s pagan origins and the answer to the question of who really owns the city. The truth is shocking and the detectives realize they have made a very dangerous enemy indeed.”
