Waterstones Says

Having reached the seventh instalment of his urban fantasy series, The Rivers of London, Ben Aaronovitch gives Peter Grant a much-needed break as he explores the world of magic beyond England’s confines. Set in Trier, Germany, October Man transports his cocktail mix of real observation and brilliant imagination to an inviting new locale, throwing in a cast of colourful new characters for good measure.

Trier is famous for wine, Romans and for being Germany's oldest city. So when a man is found dead with, his body impossibly covered in a fungal rot, the local authorities know they are out of their depth.

Fortunately this is Germany, where there are procedures for everything.

Enter Investigator Tobias Winter, whose aim is to get in, deal with the problem, and get out with the minimum of fuss, personal danger and paperwork. With the help of frighteningly enthusiastic local cop, Vanessa Sommer, he's quick to link the first victim to a group of ordinary middle aged men - and to realise they may have accidentally reawakened a bloody conflict from a previous century. But the rot is still spreading, literally and with the suspect list extending to people born before Frederick the Great solving the case may mean unearthing the city's secret magical history. So long as that history doesn't kill them first.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Peter Grant is back, and now in handy-to-read-on-the-train novella format.' - Starburst

'The Rivers of London series is an ever-evolving delight.' - Crime Review

'The Hanging Tree is definitely one of the best in the Grant/Aaronovitch pantheon. There again, so have most of the previous books in the series and the odds are the next one probably will be too.' - The Bookbag

'Aaronovitch deftly balances urban fantasy with the police procedural. As for Grant, he's a wonderful blend of laconic copper and, methodically researching how magic works, full-on nerd.' - Crime Scene

'This series is brilliant!' - Teen Librarian
