Publisher Description

Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of PC Peter Grant or the Folly, even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But Lady Ty's daughter was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favour.

Plunged into the alien world of the super-rich, where the basements are bigger than the house and dangerous, arcane items are bought and sold on the open market, a sensible young copper would keep his head down and his nose clean. But this is Peter Grant we're talking about.

He's been given an unparalleled opportunity to alienate old friends and create new enemies at the point where the world of magic and that of privilege intersect. Assuming he survives the week . . .

The hanging tree

Great read

Facing down the Faceless Man

Another in the “Rivers of London” series. The Faceless Man makes a reappearance, as does Lesley, who appears to be under his influence. And face...

Lots of inadvertent magic based destruction all over London and the Home Counties. Our hero sets about detecting magic.

Guleed is emerging as a character, and it appears she has some powers. Another prospective member of the magic squad?

Enjoyable read. As this series always is.

Excellent as usual

Readers of Ben's earlier books will not be disappointed. In fact this is by far one of the better ones. Now that Peter Grant has got more of a handle on the magic stuff his sarcasm can really shine. Can't wait for more.
