Product description

Review

Ben Aaronovitch is a master of metropolitan magical mayhem and the action is delightful. This is a tight thriller that is compelling and buckets of fun., STARBURST

Once you start, you'll find a London that's just dying to be explored., DEN OF GEEK

Aaronovitch has outdone himself this time - it's the best book of the series thus far, and that's no mean feat., IRRESPONSIBLE READER

The Hanging Tree is definitely one of the best in the Grant/Aaronovitch pantheon. There again, so have most of the previous books in the series and the odds are the next one probably will be too. -- The Bookbag

Aaronovitch deftly balances urban fantasy with the police procedural. As for Grant, he's a wonderful blend of laconic copper and, methodically researching how magic works, full-on nerd. -- Crime Scene

Aaronovitch is writing proper police procedural novels, which are at the same time proper novels about the myths and legends of London. His characters are ones you'll want to come back to, his plots are convincingly contemporary and his humour is well-judged. Altogether, this is one of the most satisfying series currently available., MORNING STAR

It feels like Aaronovitch is scaling up to something big and series ending. But not too soon, please, because getting there is so delightful., LOCUS MAGAZINE

This series is brilliant! -- Teen Librarian

Review

An incredibly fast-moving magical joyride for grown-ups - THE TIMES

For all the murder and mayhem, this is a darkly comic read with characters you can't help but like - The Sunday Express

As brilliant and funny as ever - The Sun

LIES SLEEPING is just as wonderful as the preceding Peter Grant books. Grant is one of the warmest characters in Urban Fantasy, and his adventures are grim, funny, and breathtakingly suspenseful
