'Ben Aaronovitch's masterfully crafted world of magic, ghosts and gruesome crimes gives the late, great Terry Pratchett a run for his money' The Sun'Great, great fun' Simon Mayo, Radio 2My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (and as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May. Then one night, in pursuance of a murder inquiry, I tried to take a witness statement from someone who was dead but disturbingly voluble, and that brought me to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England. Now I'm a Detective Constable and a trainee wizard, the first apprentice in fifty years, and my world has become somewhat more complicated: nests of vampires in Purley, negotiating a truce between the warring god and goddess of the Thames, and digging up graves in Covent Garden ... and there's something festering at the heart of the city I love, a malicious vengeful spirit that takes ordinary Londoners and twists them into grotesque mannequins to act out its drama of violence and despair.The spirit of riot and rebellion has awakened in the city, and it's falling to me to bring order out of chaos - or die trying.

The Special Assessment Unit. Sounds innocuous enough. But when you hear this unit of London's Metropolitan Police investigates the class of crimes codenamed 'Falcon', your ears might prick up.Dig a little deeper, and you might discover words like 'wizard' and 'magic' and 'little crocodiles'. Your conclusion might be that someone is taking the piss. But perhaps the investigations by Detective Constable Peter Grant - newly promoted cop and trainee wizard - and his colleagues at the Folly (HQ of SAU) - really are conducted in the shadowy infraworld of London's mythological past - and present. Among Peter's associates are the Rivers of London - the ancient gods and goddesses of the capital's waterways (one of them is also his girlfriend, Beverley) who, while often helpful, also skirt that fine line between good and, er, not so good.'Rivers of London: Water Weed' takes place after the events of 'The Hanging Tree' and 'Cry Fox'.
