Bryant & May - Wild Chamber : (Bryant & May Book 15)
One year later, in an exclusive London crescent, a woman walks her dog - but she's being watched. When she's found dead, the Peculiar Crimes Unit is called in to investigate. Why? Because the method of death is odd, the gardens are locked, the killer had no way in - or out - and the dog has disappeared.
So a typical case for Bryant & May. But the hows and whys of the murder are not the only mysteries surrounding the dead woman - there's a missing husband and a lost nanny to puzzle over too. And it seems very like that the killer is preparing to strike again.
As Arthur Bryant delves in to the history of London's `wild chambers' - its extraordinary parks and gardens, John May and the rest of the team seem to have caused a national scandal. If no-one is safe then all of London's open spaces must be closed...
With the PCU placed under house arrest, only Arthur Bryant remains at liberty - but can a hallucinating old codger catch the criminal and save the unit before it's too late?

Near London Bridge Station, members of the Met’s Peculiar Crimes Unit race to catch a killer. In the dark and the rain, they unwittingly cause a bizarre accident – one that will have repercussions for them all.
One year later, a smartly dressed woman is found dead in a locked private London garden. She’s been strangled. The dog she was walking has disappeared, her husband is missing and a nanny has vanished too – so far, so typical a case for Bryant and May.
As Arthur Bryant delves into the arcane history of London’s extraordinary parks and gardens – its ‘wild chambers’ – John May and the rest of the team become mired in a national scandal. It seems likely that the killer is preparing to strike again and if the city’s open spaces are not safe, then surely they must be closed . . .
With the PCU under house arrest, only Arthur Bryant remains at large and at liberty – but can one hallucinating old codger of a policeman catch the real criminal in time?
