Piracy Of The Page
Maybe I should be flattered that the Bryant & May series is successful enough to qualify.
With grim inevitability, the electronic pirates have hit my books with a massive number of illegal download sites. And because I’ve had occasion to look up Bryant & May material online (I can’t remember everything off the top of my head), they’re offering them back to me.
But before you consider illegally downloading them (not that any of you would ever think of doing such a thing) bear in mind that the transcriptions may not be absolutely perfect, as can be seen from this synopsis of ‘The Victoria Vanishes’.
‘The about harbor aspects of this refreshing follow its thinking humour and amusingly sarcastic and witty dialogue. I laughed until I cried at the pert eulogy redeemed aside Bryant at the heat of the former, unmourned Oswald Elias Finch, the PCU’s sometime pathologist who died inwards his have morgue. Bryant drunkenly ticktacks cancelled the deceased’s less attractive qualities: “No smell of humor, no capture, friendless, embittered, stone-faced and bally paltry & on lead of which he stank.” For about unaccountable argue, Bryant has the job of disposing of the dead man’s ashes, an assignment which examines in represent a bit besides lots for the loaded detective.
Fowler keeps the unequaled character of London, a order usurioused in both history and eccentricity. He has created a wonderful roll of characters into the PCU: Sergeant Janice Longbright, a alone woman who has sacrificed a social life for her career and is beginning inside rue it; Meera Mangeshkar, a baffling female nail who grew upwardly on a council estate; the aerial April, John May’s granddaughter, a regain agoraphobic who are brilliant at piece and see patrol covers, evidence, and see statements; 28 year honest-to-god Giles Kershaw, a glorious Eton graduate who is stepping into Finch’s shoes equally the unit’s young pathologist; and Dan Banbury, a hacker who utilises his considerable abilities as the PCU’s “IT roast and crime scene manager.
” Apiece of these singles has a role in toy and, although they quibble at clock comparable whatever family, they suffer grown into like profoundly well-nigh unrivaled another.
Fans should record “The Victoria Vanishes” for its colorful descriptive publish, inventiveness, and veneration of London’s becharm ambiance. Fowler revalues life’s vagaries equally comfortably as the importance of exerting a burn of skepticism fifty-fifty as things seem to follow equally apparently as the nose on your face.’
Personally, I exert the burn of skepticism fifty fifty about all of this, but you may wish to stick with the legal versions.
