The Fifth PC Grant Mystery
In the fifth of his bestselling series Ben Aaronovitch takes Peter Grant out of whatever comfort zone he might have found and takes him out of London - to a small village in Herefordshire where the local police are reluctant to admit that there might be a supernatural element to the disappearance of some local children. But while you can take the London copper out of London you can't take the London out of the copper.
Travelling west with Beverley Brook, Peter soon finds himself caught up in a deep mystery and having to tackle local cops and local gods. And what's more all the shops are closed by 4pm ...
Before becoming a bestselling author, Ben Aaronovitch was a screenwriter for
Doctor Who and a bookseller at Waterstones. He now writes full time, and every book in his Rivers of London series has been a
Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller. He is published in 14 languages and has sold more than 2 million copies around the world. Aaronovitch is also a trustee on the board of Cityread London and is a long-time supporter of Nigeria's premiere arts and cultural festival, The AkÃ© Festival. He still lives in London, the city he likes to refer to as 'the capital of the world'.
