Rookie cop and magical apprentice Peter Grant from Midnight Riot returns in this urban fantasy tale of magic and murder set to a jazz beat.

Body and Soul—the song. That’s what London constable and sorcerer’s apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho’s 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body—a sure sign that something about the man’s death was not at all natural but instead supernatural.

Body and soul—they’re also what Peter will risk as he investigates a pattern of similar deaths in and around Soho. With the help of his superior officer, Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, the last registered wizard in England; and the assistance of beautiful jazz aficionado Simone Fitzwilliam, Peter will uncover a deadly magical menace—one that leads right to his own doorstep and to the squandered promise of a young jazz musician: a talented trumpet player named Richard “Lord” Grant—otherwise known as Peter’s dear old dad.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A terrific follow-up to [Aaronovitch’s] novel Midnight Riot, the debut of Peter Grant and his own weird London. Grant continues to learn the ropes of magical London, a process that takes him on a trip through Nightingale’s haunted past and into some of the most interesting places you won’t find on any official tour. Aaronovitch makes the story sing, building momentum until the ending is literally breathless.”

    SF Revu

  • “A realistic modern-day police procedural populated by increasingly solid characters and written in the same consistently witty style as the first Peter Grant novel [Midnight Riot]…One of the most entertaining books I’ve read in a long time.”

    " Liked this next one as well as I did the first one in the series. It involves magic, and a mystery with a sense of humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jean Hontz | 2/3/2014

    " Peter Grant, London cop and would-be magician lurches from crisis to crisis, some of his own making, of course. Nightingale really does need to sit the boy down, or possibly sit on him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Andrew | 1/30/2014

    " Second procedural about London cop dealing with magic. The running theme of this series is "magic costs, no really" but this book seemed to involve much less threat to main characters; I hope the author isn't going soft already. Also: no matter how hot the ex-lover of one of your victims is, you really should pay more attention to the possibility that she is involved in the case! Even in-story cops should have *that* much genre awareness. "
