I have been fan of the ‘Rivers of London’ Series for a long time, and have been a massive advocate for the series. Probably a few too many people I know have been give the first books as Birthday or Christmas presents,  but genuinely I think they are well written, constructed with fluidity and intricately played out.   471 more words

"The Hanging Tree - Peter Grant #6" by Ben Aaronovitch

I enjoy Peter Grant’s company.
