Product Description
London’s craftiest and boldest detectives, Arthur Bryant and John May, are back in this deviously twisting mystery of black magic, madness, and secrets hidden in plain sight.

When a young woman is found dead in the pews of St. Bride’s Church—alone and showing no apparent signs of trauma—Arthur Bryant assumes this  case will go to the Peculiar Crimes Unit, an eccentric team tasked with solving London’s most puzzling murders. Yet the city police take over the investigation, and the PCU is given an even more baffling and bewitching assignment.
 
Called into headquarters by Oskar Kasavian, the head of Home Office security, Bryant and May are shocked to hear that their longtime adversary now desperately needs their help. Oskar’s wife, Sabira, has been acting strangely for weeks—succumbing to violent mood swings, claiming an evil presence is bringing her harm—and Oskar wants the PCU to find out why. And if there’s any duo that can deduce the method behind her madness, it’s the indomitable Bryant and May.
 
When a second bizarre death reveals a surprising link between the two women’s cases, Bryant and May set off on a trail of clues from the notorious Bedlam hospital to historic Bletchley Park. And as they are drawn into a world of encrypted codes and symbols, concealed rooms and high-society clubs, they must work quickly to catch a killer who lurks even closer than they think.
 
Witty, suspenseful, and ingeniously plotted, The Invisible Code is Christopher Fowler at the very top of his form.

Praise for The Invisible Code

“Delightful . . . priceless dialogue . . . Fowler’s small but ardent American following deserves to get much larger. . . . The Invisible Code has immense charm. . . . Fowler creates a fine blend of vivid descriptions, . . . quick thinking and artful understatement. . . . Best of all are the two main characters, particularly Bryant, whose fine British stodginess is matched perfectly by the agility of his crime-solving mind.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“Excellent . . . In the light of the challenges that Fowler has given his heroes in prior books, it’s particularly impressive that he manages to surpass himself once again.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for the ingenious novels featuring the Peculiar Crimes Unit

“Witty, charming, intelligent, wonderfully atmospheric and enthusiastically plotted.”The Times (UK)
 
“A series of narratives that exert an Ancient Mariner–like grip on the reader . . . Christopher Fowler is something of a British national treasure.”Crime Time
 
“Quirky, ingenious and quite brilliant . . . If you haven’t indulged you are really missing out. . . . Wonderful, gently humorous stuff, so clever.”The Bookseller
 
“A brilliant series of impossible crime novels.”The Denver Post
 
Grumpy Old Men does CSI with a twist of Dickens! Bryant and May are hilarious. I love this series.”—Karen Marie Moning
 
“An example of what Christopher Fowler does so well, which is to merge the old values with the new values—reassuring, solid, English, and traditional. He’s giving us two for the price of one here.”—Lee Child


From the Hardcover edition.
Product Description
Detectives Arthur Bryant and John May are back on the case in this whip-smart and wildly twisting mystery, in which a killer in London’s parks is proving to be a most elusive quarry.

Helen Forester’s day starts like any other: Around seven in the morning, she takes her West Highland terrier for a walk in her street’s private garden. But by 7:20 she is dead, strangled yet peacefully laid out on the path, her dog nowhere to be found. The only other person in the locked space is the gardener, who finds the body and calls the police. He expects proper cops to arrive, but what he gets are Bryant, May, and the wily members of the Peculiar Crimes Unit.
                 
Before the detectives can make any headway on the case, a second woman is discovered in a public park, murdered in nearly identical fashion. Bryant, recovering from a health scare, delves into the arcane history of London’s cherished green spaces, rife with class drama, violence, and illicit passions. But as a devious killer continues to strike, Bryant and May struggle to connect the clues, not quite seeing the forest for the trees. Now they have to think and act fast to save innocent lives, the fate of the city’s parks, and the very existence of the PCU. 
     
An irresistibly witty, inventive blend of history and suspense, Bryant & May: Wild Chamber is Christopher Fowler in classic form.

“The most delightfully, wickedly entertaining duo in crime fiction.”—The Plain Dealer
 
“Thrilling.”—Chicago Tribune

Ad tech has a problem. Fixing it isn’t easy

Advertising technology has the potential to revolutionize the way companies reach users in new, targeted and effective ways. Ad tech is flawed, inconsistent and not working. Almost everyone in the room, which included ad tech executives, brand representatives, retailers and more, agreed on one thing: the industry is not delivering nearly as well as it could be. “Part of the problem is that online advertising is a bit... “It’s all about getting the right message to the right customer at the right time,” added David Christopher, CMO of AT&T Mobility. Among the problems: the ROI on digital advertising is very unproven. and perhaps biggest, the conventional currency used to measure efficacy is based on quantity, not quality, leading to an onslaught of content created purely to drive traffic. “The currency is based on tonnage—on how many one-second impressions can you get,” said Marchese. ” And when you value tonnage over quality, he says, what you get are tonnage content producers. The industry is also not taking nearly enough advantage of available data. “There’s a huge disconnect between the data science community and the brand community,” said Damien Patton, CEO of Banjo. “From the data science perspective, we haven’t done a good job of putting things together so people who aren’t in that community can figure out how to use the data. ” Both sides, he says, don’t know the questions to ask of one another—“like, ‘How do we find content in a certain place in real time. And then how do we promote that and get out of the way—help facilitate that so our brand is getting out there in a way that will be consumed. These answers were far from answered in the hour-long session moderated by Fortune’s Andrew Nusca. But one panelist pointed out that the problem is becoming bigger than just the ad tech industry: it’s becoming a C-Suite problem and a board problem because the investments and return on huge spending on marketing isn’t adding up. “If you’re a CMO...
