In the fifth of his bestselling series Ben Aaronovitch takes Peter Grant out of whatever comfort zone he might have found and takes him out of London - to a small village in Herefordshire where the local police are reluctant to admit that there might be a supernatural element to the disappearance of some local children. But while you can take the London copper out of London you can't take the London out of the copper.
Travelling west with Beverley Brook, Peter soon finds himself caught up in a deep mystery and having to tackle local cops and local gods. And what's more all the shops are closed by 4pm...
Sales for BROKEN HOMES in trade leapt by 50% over WHISPERS UNDER GROUND, confirming that Ben Aaronovitch is an author with an unrivalled eye for a bestselling story.

Excellent, cartographically accurate story.
I thought that this is the best of the follow on books.
Another thoroughly enjoyable and easy to read adventure from Ben Aaronovich. Just a few criticisms: Mr Aaronovich come along surely 15 months is too long. I had to re-read book 4 to remember what Leslie had been up to. Do remember most TV programmes recap 7-8 times in an hour and forgive memory lapses. I was a little disappointed there wasn't more development in the world of magic and mysteries of Nightingale and the Folly. I absolutely loved the development of relationship between Beverley and Peter and sidekick Dominic.
Thanks Ben, please don't make us wait another 15 months.
I have this whole series and I hope it's only the story so far! More magic please x
