Review | Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

An entertaining police procedural with some supernatural shenanigans: 4/5 stars.

What it’s about: a rookie Police Constable is recruited to the London Met’s small supernatural division (it’s just him and his boss) to investigate a series of bizarre violent crimes which appears to involve possession by an angry spirit. 611 more words

Review: "Rivers of London" by Ben Aaronovitch

Book Review - Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch

Unfortunately I’m not much keener on PC Peter Grant in the second of Ben Aaronovitch’s book than I am of him in ‘Rivers of London’. He is less boring in ‘Moon Over Soho’, but not by much. 534 more words
