Moon Over Soho: PC Grant Book 1 (Rivers of London 2), 29 July 2012
If you believe London is crammed full of old and new magic, then you will love to follow PC Grant as he learns how to deal with the delicate politics of these magicians, some good, some bad, but all with extraordinarily large egos and all as old as time. A new recruit to the extremely small division of the police force, he continues his education, becomes braver and seems happier to accept that the probable reason for the deaths of Jazz musicians in the clubs of Soho has to be linked to something spuriously magical.
David Aaronovitch describes beautifully how London actually works! Whether you believe it or not depends on your humour and imagination.
I would recommend, if this appeals, then you really must read Rivers of London first.
