Foxglove Summer

A Rivers of London Novel

When two young girls go missing in rural Herefordshire, police constable and wizard-in-training Peter Grant is sent out of London to check that nothing supernatural is involved.
It's purely routine-Nightingale, Peter's superior, thinks he'll be done in less than a day. But Peter's never been one to walk away from someone in trouble, so when nothing overtly magical turns up he volunteers his services to the local police, who need all the help they can get. But because the universe likes a joke as much as the next sadistic megalomaniac, Peter soon comes to realize that dark secrets underlie the picturesque fields and villages of the countryside and there might just be work for Britain's most junior wizard after all.
Soon Peter's in a vicious race against time, in a world where the boundaries between reality and fairy have never been less clear....
Rezension
" Broken Homes is an enormously fun, fast-paced, witty novel .... I am indeed all agog to read what happens next ."
-Tor.com (for Broken Homes )
"Adding a supernatural element to the urban cop story seems to have hit the crossover-genre audience with a bang.... This is Harry Potter with hard-boiled wisecracks ."
- Strange Horizons (for Broken Homes )
"It's witty, fun, and full of vivid characters , and the plot twists will keep even seasoned mystery fans guessing."
- Publishers Weekly (for series)
"The perfect blend of CSI and Harry Potter ."
-io9 (for series)
"The prose is witty, the plot clever , and the characters incredibly likeable."
- Time Out (for series)
"This book is, at its heart, a police procedural with an overlay of urban fantasy elements. The voice is persuasive and funny as all get-out, and the reader is engaged with the narrative from the very first page. Aaronovitch has written a diverse cast of characters who all feel like real people with their own specific motivations. This book is simply wonderful. "
- RT Reviews (top pick) (for series)
"The most entertaining book that I have read in such a long time.... It's very funny, it's very clever, it's very nicely written .... It's such a treat."
-Nancy Pearl (for series)
