Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This month I am going with Ben Aaronovitch and Midnight Riot, the first in a series dealing with the adventures of Constable Peter Grant of London’s Metropolitan Police who ends up as the understudy of Detective Inspector Thomas Nightengale, chief and sole member of a crimes unit charged with investigating magic and the paranormal. Persuaded to become a part of this virtually clandestine branch of the force, Peter soon finds himself neck deep in murders by impossible creatures and a war between various factions of river people. It is smart, funny and filled with oddness. I am about to start book 2. View all my reviews

I read this book last winter in Hawai’i – have “Moon Over SOHO” on hand and will read it next week whilst housesitting. Also recommended: Christopher Fowler’s “Peculiar Crimes Unit” mysteries, another Metropolitan Police series.
Been meaning to pick that one up. The employees at Chapters are raving about it.
