It's that time again

Don't you just love it when it comes around. School Holidays. It conjures up all sorts of images. Lazy days on the beach, off to the movies, sleep- ins and time to sit and read a good book.

Rivers of London

Until recently, Peter Grant was a probationary constable in that mighty army for justice know to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (and to everyone else as the Filth). His only real concern in life was how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit (they who make a "valuable contribution" to policing by doing the paperwork so real coppers don't have to). Then, on his last night as a probie, he takes a witness statement from a gentleman who, despite being already dead, is still disturbingly voluble. This brings him to the attention of Chief Inspector Nightingale who, aside from being the head (and sole member) of the most specialist unit at Scotland Yard, is also the last wizard in England. And that's when the story really starts...

Ben Aaronavitch's novel has been described as what could have happened if Harry Potter grew up and joined the Old Bill. Rivers of London is set in a very vividly real world with the unreal intersected to marvellous and often comedic effect.
