Product description

Review

Praise for the Rivers of London series:

A low-income housing tower gone awry, an old enemy with a bone to pick...and a shocker of an ending--Broken Homes is a delight. --Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times-bestselling author

The prose is witty, the plot clever, and the characters incredibly likeable. --Time Out

This series is a constant joy to read....I've been looking forward all year to find out what happened next, and the book did not disappoint." --Genevieve Cogman, author of The Invisible Library

It's witty, fun, and full of vivid characters, and the plot twists will keep even seasoned mystery fans guessing. --Publishers Weekly

"The perfect blend of CSI and Harry Potter." --io9

This book is, at its heart, a police procedural with an overlay of urban fantasy elements. The voice is persuasive and funny as all get-out, and the reader is engaged with the narrative from the very first page. Aaronovitch has written a diverse cast of characters who all feel like real people with their own specific motivations. This book is simply wonderful. --RT Reviews (top pick)

The most satisfying fantasy thriller to hit bookshelves in quite some time. --SFX Magazine

The most entertaining book that I have read in such a long time.... It's very funny, it's very clever, it's very nicely written.... It's such a treat. --Nancy Pearl

Aaronovitch makes the story sing, building momentum until the ending is literally breathless." --SF Revu

Aaronovitch has a very witty, casual voice, with a tendency toward sarcasm and humor, which is threaded throughout Broken Homes. And a few crazy plot twists will devastate and delight fans in equal measure. --RT Reviews

About the Author

Ben Aaronovitch was born in London in 1964 and had the kind of dull routine childhood that drives a man either to drink or to science fiction. He is a screenwriter, with early notable success on BBC's legendary Doctor Who, for which he wrote some episodes now widely regarded as classics, and which even he is quite fond of. After a decade of such work, he decided it was time to show the world what he could really do, and embarked on his first serious original novel. The result is Midnight Riot, the debut adventure of Peter Grant.
