Description

Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of PC Peter Grant or the Folly, even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But Lady Ty's daughter was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favour.

Plunged into the alien world of the super-rich, where the basements are bigger than the house and dangerous, arcane items are bought and sold on the open market, a sensible young copper would keep his head down and his nose clean. But this is Peter Grant we're talking about.

He's been given an unparalleled opportunity to alienate old friends and create new enemies at the point where the world of magic and that of privilege intersect. Assuming he survives the week . . .

    Readers of Ben's earlier books will not be disappointed. In fact this is by far one of the better ones. Now that Peter Grant has got more of a handle on the magic stuff his sarcasm can really shine. Can't wait for more.

    A brilliant read, fully up to the standard of the other books in the series. Long pre order but worth the wait.
  • Who's your bloody proofreader?

    "ME and ..." used as subject and incoherency in punctuating enumeration... Come on, publishers, either do proper commas or go full Oxford if you must, just don't leave us somewhere in the middle. Otherwise, brilliant book : ) Cheers, Ben, you did it again. Now do it again soon!
  • Great fun and plenty of thrills

    I really enjoyed The Hanging Tree. It was enjoyable, good humoured, and tense. The characters are fascinating and I'm looking forward to finding out more about the new additions. Ben has a real flair for inviting the reader into the story and onto the streets of London.

    The long awaited continuation of Peter Grants exploration of a hidden London with its magical denizens. An absolutely compelling read with an easy attention to detail that can only be the result of serious research on every level, from the geography of London to the workings of the Met ' police. No wonder the fans keep begging for more, Dickens would be proud of such episodic cliff hangers! With its attempts to reconcile " Magic " with Newtonian science these stories draw in the hard sci if fans as well as fantasy readers; combined with great characters, plenty of action and even romance ticks so many boxes. My only complaint? I had to reread the previous stories - an easy chore whilst waiting for this latest episode- and then I had to stop myself from reading it in one go, no longer a fan, an addict. More please...
