Waterstones Says

The ninth compelling instalment of Aaronovitch's brilliantly realised genre-bending fantasy/crime series sees an impossible killing in the London Silver Vaults spell jeopardy for Detective Constable Peter Grant and the rest of the Special Assessment Unit.

There is a world hidden underneath this great city.

The London Silver Vaults – for well over a century, the largest collection of silver for sale in the world. It has more locks than the Bank of England and more cameras than a celebrity punch-up.

Not somewhere you can murder someone and vanish without a trace – only that’s what happened.

The disappearing act, the reports of a blinding flash of light and memory loss amongst the witnesses all make this a case for Detective Constable Peter Grant and the Special Assessment Unit.

Alongside their boss DCI Thomas Nightingale, the SAU find themselves embroiled in a mystery that encompasses London’s tangled history, foreign lands and, most terrifying of all, the North!

And Peter must solve this case soon because back home his partner Beverley is expecting twins any day now. But what he doesn’t know is that he’s about to encounter something – and somebody – that nobody ever expects…

“Another great book in the series!”

This is an easy go-to series. Flows quickly and extremely witty. I’ve got a few signed books - signature in this one looks the same as in ‘False Value’, the one in ‘Lies Sleeping’ looks nothing like them! Which one is... More
