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.

    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.

    I love Ben. Incredible author and writer. I was so excited about this book and after 200 odd pages it was over. I thought this is odd and even checked the other earlier novels to compare length. This book is 1/3 of a normal length novel. Sell it as a short story not a full length story next time! Now I have to wait again for the next one...! :)

    An expensive read for what is effectively a longish short story . I enjoyed the rest of the series but this was frankly a weak storyline and not worth the wait - I feel I was was robbed and not by a 17th C ghost !

    Actually checked to see if something had gone wrong with the download - this is not a full length novel, or even a complete short story. I love this author and love this series, but do not love this offering and am feeling a bit ripped off.

    My only complaint about this book - and indeed all of the Rivers series, is their addictive properties. Stayed awake and read in less than two days. I'm sure that Ben Aaronovitch, with his Dr Who experience is aware of the amazing potential of his work as a TV / film series - I'd be one of his many fans watching.

    I agree with Snograt, great story, wonderful writing but woefully short. I got to the end and had to double check I hadn’t missed something. I hadn’t, this book really is that short. I am a tad disappointed.

    I really like the combination of modern policing with a bit of fantasy. I have been looking forward to another book by Ben, but this book starts to build the suspense and suddenly it's over. No mention of previous characters, where is Bev, the Thames, Leslie and the faceless man. This just seems like Ben is trying to make money by producing substandard stories compared to his earlier books. Let's have detailed stories and suspense with a unexpected ending that we have come to expect in his previous editions.

    I love this series and preordered as soon as I was able to. Downloaded last night and the writing was as wonderful as ever, BUT - 113 pages? At full-length novel price?
