A delightful side adventure in the Peter Grant universe. I found myself chuckling, highlighting as a went, enjoying Grant's wry observations of the city and it's denizens. All the elements that make the series so remarkable, lovable and familiar are here: the humor, the sudden realization that Pet...

This is a short novella in the series featuring our intrepid detective, Peter Grant, attached to the Folly, the police unit that deals with all things magical and fantastical in London. Unlike the full length novels with sprawling storylines, this is a more sparse and tightly written affair. It a...

Delightful urban-fantasy-mystery-I-(heart)-London novella. (Well, protagonist Peter, and writer Aaronovitch, love London. I find huge crowded cities vaguely appalling, but my idea of the proper distance between neighbors is half a mile.) Something of a side-story to what may be developing as the...

I just love love love this series and the wait between the installments is kind of killing me. So I was super pleased to at least have this novella to read to satisfy my need to spend more time in the wonderful world Ben Aaronovitch has created. The case at the heart of this book is an increasing...

At the end of my write-up for The Hanging Tree , I said something along the line of wanting a break from the faceless man arc and more adventures of Peter doing some magical policing around London. Lo and behold, my request was granted in the form of this novella, or so I like to think. In truth...

This novella is number 5.7 in the Peter Grant series. This book doesn't further the themes that are developing in the series so it's not necessary to have read all of the previous books. However you'll probably enjoy this one a lot more if you've read at least "Rivers of London". In this book, gh...
