“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.

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.
