Rivers of London Book Description:

'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 2 My 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.

Rivers of London Water Weed 2 Book Description:

There’s a disturbing new drug on the streets of London. An unusual and powerful weed, branded with a distinctive logo of a woman’s face covered in tattoos. With strange, vestigia-like side effects for the magically inclined, Detective Peter Grant and DCI Thomas Nightingale are on the case. Using the Thames as a handy link for delivering drugs to buyers might seem like a good idea, but two unfortunate dealers caught the attention of young water goddesses, namely Chelsea and Olympia, who used their powers to steal time for themselves (of course). But in doing so, they’ve provoked the anger of the mastermind behind the cartel. Having already apprehended her two unwitting goons in Bev’s back garden, our heroes are now in the firing line for her escalating campaign of revenge. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; min-height: 14.0px} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; min-height: 14.0px}
