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. Download and start listening now!
