Seventy-seven ClocksBook - 2008
It was late in 1973. As strikes and blackouts ravaged the country during the Heath government's 'Winter of Discontent', members of an aristocratic family were being disposed of in various grotesque ways - by reptile, by bomb, by barber. As the hours of daylight diminish towards Christmas, Arthur Bryant and John May of the Met's Peculiar Crime Unit know that time is the key - and time is running out for the family and the police. Their investigations lead them into a hidden world of class conflict, craftsmanship and big business - but what have seventy-seven ticking clocks got to do with it?
