Description

A brand new novella in the PC Grant series!

There's something going bump on the Metropolitan line and Sergeant Jaget Kumar knows exactly who to call.

It's PC Peter Grant's speciality . . .

Only it's more than going 'bump'. Traumatised travellers have been reporting strange encounters on their morning commute, with strangely dressed people trying to deliver an urgent message. Stranger still, despite calling the police themselves, within a few minutes the commuters have already forgotten the encounter - making the follow up interviews rather difficult.

So with a little help from Abigail and Toby the ghost hunting dog, Peter and Jaget are heading out on a ghost hunting expedition.

Because finding the ghost and deciphering their urgent message might just be a matter of life and death.

    Great Story as always!!! But where’s the rest, when I pre-ordered I thought itwas a full book this is more of an intro to a full story, well written as always and enjoyed what I read. However,I feel somewhat ripped off and not just financially!!!

    As great as are the much loved characters, one can’t help but notice that this book is a third in length then the previous books of the series. The plot is a lazy whirlwind through all the established characters and the ending a dull inevitability. It’s not a novel. It’s sketch of one.
  • Entertaining but at a cost.

    I enjoyed this short story but £7.99 for a short story - you’ve got to be kidding.
  • Too short too lightweight

    This really felt like a con - half the length of his other books and practically none of the wider characters included. Didn't move the wider story on at all. A shame, as I am very much enjoying this series.
  • Overpriced and lacking in plot

    Having read this today I feel ripped off! I've had a feeling that this series is on the wane for the last couple of books - it almost feels as if Ben Aaronovitch is himself getting bored with Peter Grant as the plots and characterisation are becoming thinner per volume - perhaps this is why this 'novella' sold at the same price as a full novel, is so short? Sorry Ben, but this is one reader that you've lost!

    Honestly, gutted. Where I the rest of this book. I too had preordered as have loved the previous books but I feel totally cheated as this is at most half a novel at the cost of a full one. Doubt I'll buy the next one now. Such a shame as the writing is good.
  • Where's the rest of it

    I absolutely love the series and even pre-ordered this, imagine my disappointment as the plot was just getting interesting the book was finished. Really poor show for a full price novel you only get a really short story its as though Ben got a bit bored half way through and gave up. Where is Lesley, Facelessman and all the rest. Feeling a bit cheated both monetarily and literally
  • Short

    Good writing but certainly not his best. Not long enough. Was really more of a novelette. Felt a bit ripped off as I paid about the same for the others which three times longer and better written.
  • Not the best so far

    I’ve read all in the series and the anticipation of a new release has always been matched by the quality of the story. The Furthest Station was a bit of a let down, too simple a story and not as interesting a read as previous volumes, here’s hoping the next one is up to the prior standards.
