Description

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 King's 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...show more

Back cover copy

Londoners seem to be losing their heads... Time had been called on the Peculiar Crimes Unit. But as its elderly detectives Arthur Bryant and John May contemplate retirement, a grisly discovery is made near Kings Cross: a decapitated body in a shop freezer. Then a second corpse is found. Again, minus its head. And something decidedly strange is upsetting the area's property developers too. A figure straight out of England's mythic past - half-man, half-beast, covered in deer skin and sporting antlers made of knives - has been seen stalking the area's building sites at night. Freed up from the system but with limited resources and even less time, it seems the PCU are back in business. The search for missing body parts leads Bryant and May to London's pagan origins and the answer to the question of who really owns the city and its landscapes. The truth is shocking and the detectives realize they have made a very dangerous enemy indeed.show more
