Aaronovitch got in his sleeve. Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch”. So setting aside Griffin and her contemporaries, in my mind at least, we have in Aaronovitch an author who has a beautiful sense of the city that his characters call home. I felt urgency when the action was happening or the characters were giving chase. Set in a remote valley town in the heart of Norway’s ancient fjords, LAKE CHILD centres on the mystery of year-old Eva Olsen, as she wakes after an accident and finds herself confined to the attic room of her family’s forest home.

Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch book review
There was one recording blip, at the end of Chapter 12, when it suddenly spliced into an earlier section. Ignore the unappealing covers, which appear to be doing their level best to conceal the fact that there is any humor at all in these volumes, but if you are long-time genre readers, you already know to do that.
Between Sisters by Cathy Kelly. Rivers of London 8 books. If you don’t know what that is, I’ll leave you to enlighten yourself via Google, though I warn you that you’ll never be able to unlearn the information you receive. Broken Homes Rivers of London series: She kept telling me to read them, and I knew that I would enjoy them, but I kept putting them off. In the second, otherwise healthy musicians gigging in London’s Soho jazz clubs — and if there are as many of these in reality as Aaronovitch indicates, I know where I’m spending most of my time next time I tour the city — have been keeling over dead after performances.
Clues suggest someone trained at the wizard school long ago may be involved. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Also, if any of my fellow ignorant Americans are wondering what a Scouse accent is like I did then check out this mini-documentary: Elizabeth Trebithick is determined to fulfil her father’s dying wish and continue his life’s work as an adventurer and plant-hunter.
Far From True by Linwood Barclay. This was a pleasant enough excursion, but not outstanding for me. The story brings both sets of crimes together much in the same way Rivers brought together its own seemingly disparate plotlines.
Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch
However, I spent much of this volume frustrated and annoyed with the bben character. The development of characters is something that I like the most. I love the fact that Ben Aaronovitch just took the usual fantasy wizard tropes and placed them in the setting of present-day London.
London is definitely going on my to-visit-no-matter-what list – someday, when I actually have free time to do so. With the help of frighteningly sohho local cop, Vanessa Sommer, he’s quick to link the first victim to a group of ordinary middle aged men – and to realise they may have accidentally reawakened a bloody conflict from a previous century.
It was confirmed recently by the publishers, but I heard rumours about meetings through the twittervine a few months ago. The team is still trying to protect Nightingale, recovering from a aaronpvitch wound, so Peter is mostly on his own.
However, I felt like it adds to the flavor of the book ssoho than detracts. Whispers Under Ground The writing was really good and just like in book 1 I laughed. Peter though I found to be way gen than a little naive in this one. When Marilyn and David fall in love in the s, they are blithely ignorant of all that’s to come. We do get some nice asides to Peter’s family and his mother and father I found to be very cute together.
I was personally shocked! Usually unless the first in a series is at least a 4-star book, I don’t bother. They’ve been two of the best audiobooks I’ve listened to and there’s no way I’d pick any of this series up in print now.

The wit of the first novel is still present in Moon Over Sohothough the story has Grant making his snarky observations of police procedure and London culture with a bit more sober reflection this time. No one was going to let me exhume corpses to see if they were playing my tune, so it was back to old-fashioned legwork, starting in Soho, the heart of the scene.
Though she doesn’t figure much in this story, I fell in love with this character after just a few sentences. Hardcoverpages.
