Foxglove Summer (Peter Grant #5) - Ben Aaronovitch8

Review :: Foxglove Summer

Written by Elke

This is my favorite book in the Peter Grant series so far. This time, the story line was more of a real, well-woven narration and Peter developed to a real person instead of a wizard's apprentice only. Like in the previous books, police work means a lot of abbreviations. Finally, I've managed to memorize some of them - the funnier ones :-) - so that the flow in reading wasn't interrupted any longer. It was a nice change to the first books of the series. I like crime stories very much, so I've enjoyed this Peter Grant story which didn't lay much stress on wizardry.

Foxglove Summer

In the fifth of his bestselling series Ben Aaronovitch takes Peter Grant out of whatever comfort zone he might have found and takes him out of London - to a small village in Herefordshire where the local police are reluctant to admit that there might be a supernatural element to the disappearance of some local children. But while you can take the London copper out of London you can't take the London out of the copper.

Travelling west with Beverley Brook Peter soon finds himself caught up in a deep mystery and having to tackle local cops and local gods. And what's more all the shops are closed by 4pm...
