On the Loose (Bryant & May #7) by Christopher Fowler

Long regarded an anachronism and a thorn in the side of its superiors, the Peculiar Crimes Unit is to be disbanded. For octogenarian detectives Arthur Bryant and John May, it seems retirement is now the only option. But then a headless body is found in a freezer, and on the perimeter of a massive construction site near Kings Cross, a gigantic figure has been spotted - dressed in deerskin and sporting antlers made of knives and suddenly, with limited resources and very little time, the PCU are back in business. In the panoply of great fictional detective duos, Bryant & May rank alongside (and somewhere in between) Holmes & Watson and Mulder & Scully.

On the Loose

Thank you! Although equable John May is eager to go back to work, crusty Arthur Bryant, his fellow chief detective, is less interested in the murder than the stag-head man. But the reunion of the PCU is cause for such joy that only the most curmudgeonly fans will quibble. There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again.

Look Inside. Sep 14, ISBN Nov 24, ISBN The Peculiar Crimes Unit is no more—disbanded, finished, kaput. After years of defying the odds and infuriating their superiors, detectives Arthur Bryant and John May have finally crossed the line. While Bryant takes to his bed, his bathrobe, and his esoteric books, the rest of the team takes to the streets looking for new careers—until one of them stumbles upon a gruesome murder. Now the Unit is back for an encore performance—in a rented office with no computer network, no legal authority, and a broken toilet.

The seventh title in Christopher Fowler's series begins with London's Peculiar Crimes Unit, headed up by the dapper John May and less-than-presentable Arthur Bryant, in a state of limbo, having been put on indefinite suspension by the Home Office. They have lost their Mornington Crescent home, have no official status, and are not receiving pay pending a review of their recent activities. Reluctantly but inevitably, the team members begin to drift away into new jobs, until PC Colin Bimsley, renovating a chip shop on the Caledonian Road, stumbles across a headless body in a fridge, giving the team a case to rally around and one last chance to revive the PCU. This is a suitably bizarre event for him to get his dentures into and he swings into action immediately. Operating from a new temporary HQ, and without official back-up, access to technology, or even a budget, the team must work to solve the mystery of the stag-man and find the King's Cross executioner. At stake is the future of the major regeneration project in King's Cross, the new gateway to the UK since the completion of the Eurostar terminal at St Pancras.
