Publisher Description

London Falling by Paul Cornell is an urban fantasy twist on the classic police procedural: London cops versus magical creatures of night

Police officers Quill, Costain, Sefton, and Ross know the worst of London—or they think they do. While investigating a mobster's mysterious death, they come into contact with a strange artifact and accidentally develop the Sight. Suddenly they can see the true evil haunting London's streets.

Armed with police instincts and procedures, the four officers take on the otherworldly creatures secretly prowling London. Football lore and the tragic history of a Tudor queen become entwined in their pursuit of an age-old witch with a penchant for child sacrifice. But when London's monsters become aware of their meddling, the officers must decide what they are willing to sacrifice to clean up their city.

Hang in there!

I had this sitting in my library for several months, but wasn't in the mood for a complex police crime drama, which is what it reads like at first. I suppose that's sort of what it is, but not only that! I was finally in the mood and pressed on past the first part. What a great surprise! (I won't spoil it) This is well written, has great characters, an engaging plot that is full of satisfying twists and turns that I didn't see coming, but fit perfectly into the narrative he was building. The author moves the story along nicely. Do yourself a favor and soak in the beginning of this book, and you won't be disappointed!
