Ben Aaronovitch's bestselling Rivers of London urban fantasy series • “The perfect blend of CSI and Harry Potter.” —io9 Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of Police Constable Peter Grant or the Folly—London’s police department for supernatural cases—even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the flats of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But the daughter of Lady Ty, influential goddess of the Tyburn river, was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favor.

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… Download and start listening now!

    " Every Peter Grant book feels fresh and fun. They make me laugh and always have a jovial element that is pleasant. I've tried other urban fiction and other police procedural stuff and it isn't the same. Part of it is definitely Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, his narration is excellent! It bring the characters to life! Absolutely would recommend. "

About the Author

Ben Aaronovitch was born in London in 1964 and had the kind of dull, routine childhood that drives a man either to drink or to science fiction. He is a screenwriter, with early notable success on BBC’s legendary Doctor Who, for which he wrote some episodes now widely regarded as classics, and which even he is quite fond of. After a decade of such work, he decided it was time to show the world what he could really do, and he embarked on his first serious original novel. The result was Midnight Riot, the debut adventure of Peter Grant, followed by Moon over Soho and Whispers under Ground.
