Was delighted that a 4th book had been published :) Originally, read the first book very tongue in cheek as it was not my usual reading material. Then wanted to know what happened to Peter Grant, Leslie and Toby the dog! Still hoping that Leslie gets her face back through Peter and they live a happy ever after life....however only on page 67..........

The fusion of steam punk fantasy with the modern police procedural is genius. The plot is fast paced. And the backdrop of London is irresistible. The whole package narrated by Peter Grant; a genuinely likeable character. Can't wait for the next one!

Like all series, you need to read the others first.
It's a good read and wants you to keep turning the pages, but it will be interesting if the next one(if there is one), manages to produce something fresh.

Took a while to get there, the author does love the sound of his own voice, but a good read, you just need to keep going.

It almost breaks my heart to give an Aaronovitch book less than 5 stars, but I cannot, in all good conscience, rate it the same as the preceding books. I read Aaronovitch on a Kindle and I 'clip' the bits that I particularly enjoy. These tend to be where the author turns his literary knife sweetly in the back of the Met, or of racial prejudice, or of human frailty in general, or whatever his target happens to be on that page. I also enjoy the way that he also litters his text with amusingly incongruous simile and metaphor, but when I check back on my clippings for Broken Homes, there is only one quote that I have bothered to clip.
However, my main complaint is that although the book trips along at a fair pace, it stops suddenly about halfway through the story, as though the editor had walked into Aaronovitch's study and said: "Ok, time's up. Give me what you've finished so far."
I felt cheated. And now I will probably have to wait for another year or more and pay again to find out what happens next. Not fair.
