Publisher Description

Book 3 in the Rivers of London series, from Sunday Times Number One bestselling author Ben Aaronovitch.

Peter Grant is learning magic fast. And it's just as well - he's already had run-ins with the deadly supernatural children of the Thames and a terrifying killer in Soho. Progression in the Police Force is less easy. Especially when you work in a department of two. A department that doesn't even officially exist. A department that if you did describe it to most people would get you laughed at. And then there's his love life. The last person he fell for ended up seriously dead. It wasn't his fault, but still.

Now something horrible is happening in the labyrinth of tunnels that make up the tube system that honeycombs the ancient foundations of London. And delays on the Northern line is the very least of it. Time to call in the Met's Economic and Specialist Crime Unit 9, aka 'The Folly'. Time to call in PC Peter Grant, Britain's Last Wizard.

Top banana

Just finished Whispers. A great continuation of the characters and plots from the previous two books. So if you liked Rivers and Moon, there'll be no disappointment here. I'm not sure it would stand up so well on its own and I found it to have a gentler pace and less excitement/urgency than Moon. But very enjoyable nonetheless.

Apart from being fascinated by the detailed London setting, I love the pop/geek culture references; almost spilled my drink at the Space Hulk reference a year before the computer game reworking of that Games Workshop/1980s classic...

So all in all I'm looking forward to the next instalment and finding out whatever is going on on the other side of the river...

Good for absentee Londoner’s

This series of books provide light relief to a mundane life and also explain in minute detail bits of the London I thought I knew but didn’t. Great stuff.

Geeky nostalgia with an expanding universe

Well, where to begin? I bought the first book based on the 99p offer, and that was it.... hooked, I’ve read each one in order and can’t wait to read more, intelligent and witty writing and some references that made me look back at my childhood a-la Spacehulk.... even if you have no idea what that means, give it a go. Oh, and for those of you who crave some romance, there’s a bit of will they / won’t they. Deserving of 5 stars in my opinion.
