Crime Thriller Book Club 2013
SPECSAVERS CRIME THRILLER BOOK CLUB
We’re at week three in the Specsavers Crime and Thriller Club and so far it’s been a fascinating look into the best crime books, authors and dramas to have made an impact in the last year.
Tonight’s book club selection is Christopher Fowler’s Bryant and May and the Invisible Code featuring the Peculiar Crimes Unit. This book is a dead good favourite – packed full of secret codes, hidden relics and witchcraft!
Bryant and May and the Invisible Code
About the Book
The game the children were playing was called ‘Witch-Hunter’. Spying a woman sitting alone in a church courtyard, they curse her and wait for her to die. And die she does.
It would be a case for the Peculiar Crimes Unit, but Bryant & May are otherwise engaged: the wife of their avowed enemy has suddenly started behaving very strangely indeed. He’s convinced that someone is trying to drive her insane; she believes she’s the victim of witchcraft.
It’s only when a society photographer is stabbed to death in a London park that Bryant and May realise there is a link between the two investigations. Uncovering a world of private clubs, hidden passageways, madness, secret codes, covert loyalties and murder, they must tread carefully. Because this case might not just end in disaster, it might also get them all killed…
Tonight’s episode of the Specsavers Crime Thriller Club will also be looking at living legend Patricia Cornwell.
The Crime Thriller Book Club on tonight, ITV3 at 9pm.
