The seventh book of the bestselling Rivers of London urban fantasy series returns to the adventures of Peter Grant, detective and apprentice wizard, as he solves magical crimes in the city of London.

Martin Chorley, aka the Faceless Man, wanted for multiple counts of murder, fraud, and crimes against humanity, has been unmasked and is on the run. Peter Grant, Detective Constable and apprentice wizard, now plays a key role in an unprecedented joint operation to bring Chorley to justice.

But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that Chorley, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long term plan. A plan that has its roots in London’s two thousand bloody years of history, and could literally bring the city to its knees.

To save his beloved city Peter’s going to need help from his former best friend and colleague–Lesley May–who brutally betrayed him and everything he thought she believed in.

And, far worse, he might even have to come to terms with the malevolent supernatural killer and agent of chaos known as Mr Punch….

A former Waterstones’ bookseller, Ben Aaronovitch cut his teeth writing for television including Doctor Who before turning to the inspiration of crime fiction to fashion Rivers of London. Storming the bestseller lists the novel and it’s subsequent sequels delve into the murky underbelly of London as seen through the eyes of magician-detective Peter Grant, throwing in just a dash of magic for good measure.

‘The books deliver a charming, witty and exciting romp through a magical world not all that far from our own, offering a delightfully escapist sidetrack.’ - Independent
