Ben Aaronovitch's bestselling Rivers of London urban fantasy series * "The perfect blend of CSI and Harry Potter." --io9

A great addition to the Peter Grant series! The mystery was well played, the cast of characters was absolutely fantastic, and as always the magic and those who surround it, are fascinating.

Very seldom do I look forward to "open endings" but this time around I'm thrilled to know that we will be getting more Folly stories! Join Peter, Nightingale, Guleed and the rest of the MET for another exciting adventure in London's underground magic scene.
