Bryant & May’s Nineteenth Mystery.

SYNOPSIS:  “One Sunday morning, the outspoken Speaker of the House of Commons steps out of his front door only to be crushed under a mountain of citrus fruit…

Bizarre accident or something more sinister?  The government needs to know, because here’s a man whose knowledge of Parliament’s biggest secrets could compromise its future.

It ought to be the perfect case for Arthur Bryant and John May and the Peculiar Crimes Unit, but one of them seems to have gone missing, the other is in hospital, and the rest of the team have all been dismissed.  Does this mean the PCU is no more?

Events escalate, and soon a series of brutal yet undeniably clever killings, linked to an old English fold song, threatens the very foundations of society.  Out of the blue, the PCU is offered a reprieve and is (temporarily) back in business!

And if the two elderly detectives – ‘old men in a woke world’ – do manage to set aside their differences and discover why some of London’s most influential figures are being targeted, they might not only save the unit but also prevent the entire city from descending into chaos…”
