Description

A WHOLE NEW REASON TO MIND THE GAP
 
It begins with a dead body at the far end of Baker Street tube station, all that remains of American exchange student James Gallagher—and the victim’s wealthy, politically powerful family is understandably eager to get to the bottom of the gruesome murder. The trouble is, the bottom—if it exists at all—is deeper and more unnatural than anyone suspects . . . except, that is, for London constable and sorcerer’s apprentice Peter Grant. With Inspector Nightingale, the last registered wizard in England, tied up in the hunt for the rogue magician known as “the Faceless Man,” it’s up to Peter to plumb the haunted depths of the oldest, largest, and—as of now—deadliest subway system in the world.

At least he won’t be alone. No, the FBI has sent over a crack agent to help. She’s young, ambitious, beautiful . . . and a born-again Christian apt to view any magic as the work of the devil. Oh yeah—that’s going to go well.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 18, 2012 – One of the most refreshing things about former Doctor Who writer Aaronvitch s Rivers of London series of magical procedurals is that they are blessedly free of manufactured rivalries. Instead, Police Constable (and freshly minted wizard) Peter Grant works for a supernatural branch of the London police department that is more interested in solving crimes than creating drama. In Grant s third outing (after Moon over Soho), he gets called in to help with a magic-linked murder at an Underground station. The victim turns out to be the son of a U.S. senator, with a sketchy, not-quite-human roommate. To solve the murder, Grant and his associates, including disfigured fellow magician Lesley May and trigger-happy FBI agent Kimberley Reynolds, plumb the city s depths as well as its secret history. This fast, engrossing novel is enjoyable, cheerful, and accessible to new readers.

Customer Reviews

Ehhhh

Frankly I was underwhelmed. I just didn't really feel like there was any development of the characters... Maybe , maybe Lesley. I absolutely loved the two previous books because I felt the first one set the tone and the second one carried it on but this was kind of stagnated. The story was Okayyyy; a murder mystery that's not particularly relevant to the conflicts raised in the previous two books. aaronovich is a decent writer but the magic never hit higher levels (and arguably decreased) and the whole scientific element of magic which really drew me in was never expounded upon. Basically what I would consider a filler in a series I like. 3 stars for the character being themselves and a decent story but not
Much else

Loved it

I'm hooked on the Peter Grant books, and this one did not disappoint. London, as always in this series, is a central character, but now below ground as well as above.
