Lies Sleeping – Ben Aaronovitch

Peter Grant (now a Detective Constable) and the rest of the magic-wielding team at the Folly are on the trail of Martin Chorley, the Faceless Man, with help from various, better known, parts of the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police. Lesley May and Mr Punch also feature, as do Beverley Brook and her Rivers of London family, and we meet another of the London River Goddesses – Lulu, aka Walbrook, serving pints in a Shoreditch pub.

Lots of action takes place in the City, from its Roman beginnings to 21st century financial centre, and the new Bloomberg building and the now-displaced Whitechapel Bell Foundry both play key roles.

Broken Homes – Ben Aaronovitch

AKA Peter Grant/Rivers of London Book 4, in which Nightingale, Peter and Lesley are drawn to various locations south of the river.

A MAGIC read, as always – blending entertaining narrative, architecture, 21st century London life with a splash of the uncanny – and with a MASSIVE twist at the end, which I didn’t see coming.

Stephen Walter’s artwork on the UK covers is fascinating.
