The fourteenth novel in Christopher Fowler's gloriously inventive, imaginative series featuring detectives Arthur Bryant and John May and the Peculiar Crimes Unit is a treat for readers as murder and scandal lead the team to delve into the history of London's wild spaces, it's parks and gardens . . .

Probably the most popular detective duo since the passing of

I'll make a prediction now - Wild Chamber will be in my top five books for 2017. Bryant and May continue to be at the top of their game, and in some ways the novels are improving with age . . . there's no author quite like Christopher Fowler, and there are no characters quite like Arthur Bryant and John May. There are a multitude of facets to Wild Chamber which make it stand out . . . Fowler is London born and bred, and his love for the city and all its eccentricities clearly comes through in the narrative. . * CRIMEFICTIONLOVER *
A joy to read. It's intelligent crime fiction that's accessible to everyone. * CRIMEPIECES *
Delightfully entertaining . . . I for one, think this is incredibly clever. Fowler richly deserves his CWA Library Award. * THE BOOKBAG *
