Waterstones Says

Ingeniously blending urban fantasy with the police procedural, this dazzling novella in the Rivers of London series follows Peter Grant’s cousin Abigail as she sets out to solve the mystery of teenagers going missing around Hampstead Heath.

The brand new novella in the much-loved and #1 bestselling Rivers of London series.

Ghost hunter, fox whisperer, troublemaker.

It is the summer of 2013 and Abigail Kamara has been left to her own devices. This might, by those who know her, be considered a mistake. While her cousin, police constable and apprentice wizard Peter Grant, is off in the sticks, chasing unicorns, Abigail is chasing her own mystery. Teenagers around Hampstead Heath have been going missing but before the police can get fully engaged, the teens return home - unharmed but vague about where they've been.

Aided only by her new friend, Simon, her knowledge that magic is real and a posse of talking foxes that think they're spies, Abigail must venture into the wilds of Hampstead to discover who is luring the teenagers and more importantly - why?

“Lovely”

This seems to have divided opinion amongst ROL devotees. I loved it. Abigail is a fresh and genuine new voice and the foxes are just delicious. Hope we hear more of both - and Simon who is another good character.... More

“Novella?”

Why is a perfectly normal length of story now described as a novella? This is another jolly tale from Ben Aaronovitch starring a company of cute foxes. Fascinating plot and a satisfying conclusion. My only criticism... More
