Praise for Christopher Fowler's ingenious novels featuring the Peculiar Crimes Unit "Fowler, like his crime-solvers, is deadpan, sly, and always unexpectedly inventive."--Entertainment Weekly "An imaginative funhouse of a world where sage minds go to expand their vistas and sharpen their wits."--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review "[Fowler] takes delight in stuffing his books with esoteric facts; together with a cast of splendidly eccentric characters [and] corkscrew plots, wit, verve and some apposite social commentary, they make for unbeatable fun."--The Guardian "Mr. Fowler's small but ardent American following deserves to get much larger."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times "The most delightfully, wickedly entertaining duo in crime fiction."--The Plain Dealer "Captivating."--The Seattle Times "Dazzling."--The Denver Post "Thrilling."--Chicago Tribune
