    Epub Christopher Fowler Ø Ø The Water Room Kindle Ô The Water Kindle - water kindle, room epub, The Water epub, The Water Room PDF/EPUBThis second book of the aptly named Peculiar Crimes Unit series featuring Arthur Bryant and John May involves odd death in London truly a character of the novel itself and esoteric knowledge about the city and its history than you might want to shake a stick at Since it happens to rain during most of the novel shaking a stick wouldn't accomplish muchAside from solving this mysterious death is it a murder? Bryant and May must also find a way to justify keeping the unit that has been their lives for a half century open and functioning as part of the MET Water figures prominently thr

    Epub Christopher Fowler Ø Ø The Water Room Kindle Ô The Water Kindle - water kindle, room epub, The Water epub, The Water Room PDF/EPUBThe premise grabs you an elderly woman who never leaves her house is found dead in her house perfectly dry and dressed for a party with lungs full of river water How can it be? With no clues to go on it's the perfect opportunity for a couple of grizzly crabby octogenarian detectives of the Peculiar Crimes UnitThe two predictably uncover deeply covered clues and meet odd people like witches along the way in solving this impossible mysteryThis novel was not exactly my cup of tea If you want a straight police procedural this is not for you Although the murder mystery is itself interesting so much of the novel seems to be spent dealing with other things all of them eventually lead up to the ending but the experience i had was trying to listen to someone sing in a hall where eve

    Epub Christopher Fowler Ø Ø The Water Room Kindle Ô The Water Kindle - water kindle, room epub, The Water epub, The Water Room PDF/EPUBWell that was fun Not for the multiple victims mind but being along for the ride as the crazy detective duo attempt to solve what appears to be 3 completely unrelated murders They aren't called the Peculiar Crimes Unit for nothing This ranks up there for peculiar that's for sure Other than living on the same street seeing how the murders could be related at all was the real mystery It takes a person who likes to think outside the box to see fragments of ideas and actions that come together to become a plausible reason that 3 separate murders are linkedIt was also an interesting and fascinating glimpse into the little known London underground water system In a place that deals with water deluges on a continual basis it's the hidden systems that are a remarkable and necessary part of the urban environment that we don't even know exist And what a setting for a mysteryI love the quirky characters it adds to the f

    Epub Christopher Fowler Ø Ø The Water Room Kindle Ô The Water Kindle - water kindle, room epub, The Water epub, The Water Room PDF/EPUBI have fallen in love with two elderly detectives from the British Peculiar Crimes Unit as created by Christopher Fowler The Water Room is not only charmingly written it has one of the best mysteries I've read in a long time actually unusual and interesting in itself aside from the book's humor and delightful characters The book manages to be Victorian early twentieth century and modern at the same time It is a good novel as well as a mystery which is not something I can always say even about mysteries I enjoy It would make a wonderful television mini series and I hope it's done soonI can't wait to hunt down and read the rest of the series
