Product Description

Review

“A terrific follow-up to [Aaronovitch’s] novel Midnight Riot, the debut of Peter Grant and his own weird London. Grant continues to learn the ropes of magical London, a process that takes him on a trip through Nightingale's haunted past and into some of the most interesting places you won't find on any official tour. Aaronovitch makes the story sing, building momentum until the ending is literally breathless.”  --SF Revu

“A realistic modern-day police procedural populated by increasingly solid characters and written in the same consistently witty style as the first Peter Grant novel [Midnight Riot]. . . . One of the most entertaining books I’ve read in a long time.”  --Fantasy Literature

About the Author

Ben Aaronovitch was born in London in 1964 and had the kind of dull routine childhood that drives a man to drink or to science fiction. He is a screenwriter, with early notable success on BBC television’s legendary Doctor Who, for which he wrote some episodes now widely regarded as classics, and which even he is quite fond of. He has also penned several groundbreaking TV tie-in novels. After a decade of such work, he decided it was time to show the world what he could really do and embarked on his first serious original novel. The result is Midnight Riot, the debut adventure of Peter Grant, followed by Moon Over Soho.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It is some months since the events of "Rivers of London," and Constable Peter Grant continues to work in his rather strange assignment with the London police, that of dealing with magical and/or supernatural individuals. His great mentor, Inspector Nightingale, is on medical leave after those previous events, but he can still direct Peter in both his studies and his work; meanwhile, Peter's fellow constable Leslie is trying to come to terms with having, essentially, a melted face as a result of those events. But none of this stops supernatural crimes from occurring, in this instance along the lines of murder by vagina dentana, which appears to be associated with the London jazz scene. Since Peter's father is a jazz musician, he is particularly knowledgeable and well-placed to carry out this investigation more or less on his own.... This second book in Aaronovitch's series is quite fun, albeit in a sometimes grim kind of way. The characters appear more fleshed out than in the first novel, or maybe it's just that the reader is getting to know them better; and Aaronovitch is especially skilled at evoking various sites in London and showing ways in which the supernatural might easily fit in without being noticed. I'm looking forward to reading the third book in the series, and I know a fourth has already been published in England and will be coming to North America in the new year. This is one series where it is essential to read the books in chronological order, so if you haven't already, start with "Rivers of London" (alas, called in North America "Midnight Riot," a terrible title) before tackling this one; once you do that, I'm pretty sure that like me, you'll be hooked! Recommended.

Having never read Rivers of London, the first book in this series, I had no idea what this book was all about when I got it from the library. It is, to paraphrase one reviewer, as if Harry Potter grew up to become a cop in London. And practice magic by being part of a Special Branch devoted to cases involving magic, ghosts and the like. And had a father who used to be a jazz musician. And, instead of Prof. Dumbledore and company, had a mentor named Nightengale, a famous wizard.

Oh, and if Harry was black. (Or is it 'African-British' these days?)

There are gods and goddesses here, too, in the form of children of the river Thames. I didn't realize this until I watched our hero, Peter Grant, driving an ambulance into the Thames containing an apparently injured man, saving himself by swimming ashore, and leaving the man behind in the water---because he's a river god, and isn't about to drown. Weird. Not to mention the case he's working on, which involves what seems to be a murderer of jazz musicians but is more like attacks by a vampire with a knife.

You must read this series. It is witty, spooky, at times, hilarious, and always entertaining.

Another great book following on from "Rivers of London". Same cast of characters, funny, sad, tongue-in-cheek writing. What's not to love?

This story was great. Aaronovitch keeps the humour and suspense right all the way through with a great twist at the end.
