Rivers of London

The Second PC Grant Mystery

(7)

My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (and as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don´t have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May. Then one night, in pursuance of a murder inquiry, I tried to take a witness statement from someone who was dead but disturbingly voluable, and that brought me to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England.

Now I´m a Detective Constable and a trainee wizard, the first apprentice in fifty years, and my world has become somewhat more complicated: nests of vampires in Purley, negotiating a truce between the warring god and goddess of the Thames, and digging up graves in Covent Garden ... and there´s something festering at the heart of the city I love, a malicious vengeful spirit that takes ordinary Londoners and twists them into grotesque mannequins to act out its drama of violence and despair.

The spirit of riot and rebellion has awakened in the city, and it´s falling to me to bring order out of chaos - or die trying.

Portrait

In Peter Grant, grown up Harry Potter fans find a worthy successor. Exciting, funny (but not cheesy) and very british!

Verena Zimmermann, Thalia-Buchhandlung Nuernberg

This isn't just for Potterheads. This is for people who love good, thrilling crime storys who like the fantastic part. It also has a lot of british humor and historical facts.

River gods, vampires, ghosts. Not exactly what Peter Grant had in mind, when he decided to become a Police Constable. A real pageturner! River gods, vampires, ghosts. Not exactly what Peter Grant had in mind, when he decided to become a Police Constable. A real pageturner!

Toller Auftakt der Fantasy-Krimi-Reihe um den Londoner Bobby Peter Grant. Kann mit Humor, Spannung und einem kniffligen Fall aufwarten, der ganz schön magisch ist ...

Armchair Wizard
von Johannes Kößler aus Wien am 10.02.2012

Once again we hit a world, where magic is real, but hidden, where ghosts exist, where an outsider stumbles into a world full of magic creatures. So far, so used. BUT! Haha! But Ben Aaronovitch accomplishes, where so many of the other urban fantasy authors fail, namely to mix british humor,... Once again we hit a world, where magic is real, but hidden, where ghosts exist, where an outsider stumbles into a world full of magic creatures. So far, so used. BUT! Haha! But Ben Aaronovitch accomplishes, where so many of the other urban fantasy authors fail, namely to mix british humor, and a good british crime novel (the main focus seems to be always on good, old police work) with nicely written, realistic characters. None of the pathetic "hear, hear" and "alas" BS you get on other urban fantasy novels, which is refreshing and good. I´ll definitely keep an eye out for sequels. Oh, wait, there is already a sequel and I´m already reading it. Aaah. Good stuff!

Witty, funny, magical! If you were looking for a grown-up successor of Harry Potter, look no further! Peter Grant is THE sorcerer's apprentice you need to read about!
