Fowler, Christopher: Disturbia (27.04.09)
An aspiring writer has to solve a series of clues to different locations in London to stay alive after he becomes involved with a group of upper-class neo-fascists. Displaying his usual erudition and love of the unusual, Fowler has told a fast-moving tale which is anything but pleasant as there are a number of murders in the run-up to the denouement which has an almost unbelievable twist. Bryant of the Bryant and May books has a brief appearance as do others appeaing in the stories though they all are peripheral to the main story. Well-written but the overall effect was not at all pleasant.
