"London's most brilliant but unconventional detectives, Arthur Bryant and John May, must plumb the depths of a particularly murky mystery. The Peculiar Crimes Unit faces its most baffling case yet--and if Bryant and May can't rise to the challenge, the entire unit may go under. Near the Tower of London, along the River Thames, the body of a woman has been discovered chained to a stone post and left to drown. Curiously, only one set of footprints leads to the tragic spot. "The Bride in the Tide," as the London press gleefully dubs her, has the PCU stumped. Why wouldn't the killer simply dump her body in the river--as so many do? Arthur Bryant wonders if the answer lies in the mythology of the Thames itself. Unfortunately, the normally wobbly funhouse corridors of Bryant's mind have become, of late, even more labyrinthine. The venerable detective seems to be losing his grip on reality. May fears the worst, as Bryant rapidly descends from merely muddled to one stop short of Barking, hallucinating that he's traveled back in time to solve the case. There had better be a method to Bryant's madness--because, as more bodies are pulled from the river's depths, his partner and the rest of the PCU find themselves in over their heads. Fiendishly fun and rich in London lore, Bryant and May: Strange Tide is Christopher Fowler at his best, delivering more twists and turns than the Thames itself. Praise for Christopher Fowler's ingenious novels featuring the Peculiar Crimes Unit "Fowler, like his crime-solvers, is deadpan, sly, and always unexpectedly inventive."--Entertainment Weekly "An imaginative funhouse of a world where sage minds go to expand their vistas and sharpen their wits."--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review "[Fowler] takes delight in stuffing his books with esoteric facts; together with a cast of splendidly eccentric characters [and] corkscrew plots, wit, verve and some apposite social commentary, they make for unbeatable fun."--The Guardian "Mr. Fowler's small but ardent American following deserves to get much larger."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times "The most delightfully, wickedly entertaining duo in crime fiction."--The Plain Dealer "Captivating."--The Seattle Times "Dazzling."--The Denver Post "Thrilling."--Chicago Tribune"--"Fowler's quirky, beloved detectives, Arthur Bryant and John May, return in another dazzling investigtion. In another impossible case for the Peculiar Crimes Unit, a woman is found drowned in the Thames after being tied to a pillar at low water--and only her footprints lead to the spot where she was killed..."--… (lisätietoja)

It's always hard to start a series in the middle, but I'd been hearing good things about the series and wanted to give it a try. The story is, naturally, a murder mystery; the body of a pregnant woman is found in the Thames river, chained up, with no indication of how she got there. The case appropriately is assigned to the Peculiar Crimes Unit, a small division of the London Police who specialize in such strange occurrences. The eclectic unit includes a Staff Cat, and is led by the titular elderly detectives: proper and stylish John May and the odd but brilliant Arthur Bryant.

The mystery is as twisted as the Thames itself, involving, among other things, not only the initial victim but refugees, an illegal gambling den, and a new-age self-help center. Fowler weaves in a ton of London history and facts about the Thames throughout the story, but it never feels overly forced. One thing I didn't like was the parallel story involving a refugee in London. This part of the book is not bad in the least, but it felt as if this character was set up to be more significant than he was.

The end of the story does provide an intriguing tease at the next volume, but I think I'll be going back to the beginning of the series first.

A finished copy was provided through the Librarything Early Reviewers program. ( )

I won't lie. This one, the 13th in the series, was a tough read. One of the main characters isn't well, as you can guess would eventually happen with two elderly detectives past the expected ends of their careers. But these aren't just any men and the reader can't help but pull for them to stay on the job for as long as they possibly can because they are likely the only ones who can figure out why bodies keep showing up near the Thames. Full of lots of Thames lore and current London politics, I once again learned while I was entertained. Sigh. I love that the most.

Once you’ve read a Bryant and May detective novel, you’ll want to read more. Bryant and May are a team of veteran detectives in London’s Peculiar Crimes unit. All the members of this police unit are a little peculiar themselves, but none can compare to Bryant, who seems to be doddering into old age. As he gets worse and worse, his teammates worry that once he is gone, they will be moved to other units as Bryant and his clever non-lineal thinking is the reason for their high ranking in crime solving. This book involving a lot of history about the Thames River is no exception. Not only is Bryant able to solve cases involving the murder of several people found in the Thames, he’s also able to figure out why he seems to be heading toward dementia. ( )

Delightful story of two aging detectives solving the strangest (and peculiar) crimes that City of London has to offer. This story centers on the River Thames and the people who work on and around the water. The lead detective is more than a bit off his game in the episode and it provides another mystery that must be solved. The whole unit is at risk without him. Recommended for lovers of British arcane facts. ( )
