Waterstones Says

The new Peter Grant mystery finds the erstwhile wizarding copper immersed in the nefarious goings-on of a shady tech company. Throbbing with Aaronovitch’s trademark blend of comic fantasy and compelling crime, False Value is a bravura addition to the Rivers of London sequence.

The hugely anticipated brand new Rivers of London novel...

Peter Grant is facing fatherhood, and an uncertain future, with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm. Rather than sit around, he takes a job with emigre Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner's brand new London start up - the Serious Cybernetics Company.

Drawn into the orbit of Old Street's famous 'silicon roundabout', Peter must learn how to blend in with people who are both civilians and geekier than he is. Compared to his last job, Peter thinks it should be a doddle. But magic is not finished with Mama Grant's favourite son.

Because Terrence Skinner has a secret hidden in the bowels of the SCC. A technology that stretches back to Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, and forward to the future of artificial intelligence. A secret that is just as magical as it technological - and just as dangerous.

“Gripping techno-magic in a very real world”

Another fascinating addition to the Rivers of London series. Taking on a new story arc that is set in a wonderfully realised computer innovation company of modern London, with plenty of nods to real history, myth and... More

“Eight books in, this series is as fresh as ever”

I had to ask myself if I was actually going to review the 8th in this massively popular series?
