Oh how I love Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London books.
For this little novella we leave Peter Grant in the wilds of Herefordshire (!) and hang out with his niece Abigail. It’s the summer of 2013, and young north London teens are going missing for a day or night or two from the vicinity of Hampstead Heath…..
The presence of talking foxes always reminds me of the blink foxes of Alex Verus’ magical London. I would love Peter and Alex to meet, and I wonder what would happen if their worlds were to overlap….
And in looking up some of the teen vocab, I did find myself deep in the pages of MetaFilter FanFare Peter Grant Club…. brilliant!
