Lies Sleeping by Ben Aaronovitch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Coming back to Peter Grant is always a super-huge breath of fresh air. Every time I pick up one of these books, I know I'm going to be blown away by hugely interesting details, a very tongue-in-cheek Deputy-Constable's wry humor, and a richly imagined and described London.
Oh, yeah, and Peter's a wizard. Working as a cop.
Always under the bureaucratic nightmare, wishing things hadn't gone so bad with his previous partner, having sexytimes with a river... it's all GOOD. Even the takeout and stakeouts.
Aaronovitch's writing is always a freaking delight. This is one of those cases where I say, "Ignore the overt UF overtones and feel the magic in the telling." It's full of music, geeky humor, Latin, and enough British pluck to make you run to your mommy holding a teaspoon.
Saying much more other than this is, by far and away, a police procedural with lots of great plot points and discoveries, might just give away the jig. Suffice to say, it's quality is just as good, and delightful, as the previous ones. :)
What an end! WTF is going to happen next?
