Bryant and May on the Loose by Christopher Fowler

In the previous book, "The Victoria Vanishes," the Peculiar Crimes Unit was disbanded and their building taken over by another police unit. Detectives Bryant and May, long past the age of retirement, solved London's odd crimes at a better rate than the metropolitan police.
The PCU gets a reprieve when a man impersonating a stag shows up on the streets of King's Cross, a busy part of London undergoing massive reconstruction. Colin Bimsley, formerly a member of the PCU, does some construction work for a shop owner in King's Cross and finds a headless corpse in a freezer.
With great reluctance from upper management, Bryant and May are instructed to resurrect the unit for one last case.
