Description
The seventh book of the bestselling Rivers of London series returns to the adventures of Peter Grant, detective and apprentice wizard, as he solves magical crimes in the city of London.
The Faceless Man, wanted for multiple counts of murder, fraud, and crimes against humanity, has been unmasked and is on the run. Peter Grant, Detective Constable and apprentice wizard, now plays a key role in an unprecedented joint operation to bring him to justice.
But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that the Faceless Man, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long term plan. A plan that has its roots in London's two thousand bloody years of history, and could literally bring the city to its knees.
To save his beloved city Peter's going to need help from his former best friend and colleague—Lesley May—who brutally betrayed him and everything he thought she believed in. And, far worse, he might even have to come to terms with the malevolent supernatural killer and agent of chaos known as Mr Punch....

      • bioText: 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.

        Kobna Holdbrook-Smith graduated from the Guildford School of Acting in 2000. In 2006 he won the Best Actor in a Supporting Role Award at the Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards, for his performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre. Holdbrook-Smith has appeared in a number of TV series and movies, including Little Britain and Doctor Strange.

        October 15, 2018
        Aaronovitch’s seventh Peter Grant urban fantasy (after 2016’s The Hanging Tree) is more funny than memorable, with the plot overshadowed by the laugh-out-loud prose. Peter, a London police detective constable assigned to the pursuit of paranormal crime, has magic powers himself, and is also an extreme nerd able to distinguish between the depictions of dwarfish iconography in Tolkien’s books and those in filmed adaptations. He’s on the trail of Martin Chorley, the wizard known as Faceless Man II, who’s viewed as a major security threat to the U.K. Chorley has begun stealing artifacts, apparently as part of a plan to “bring back King Arthur... the one that was totally made up by a bunch of Welsh Nationalists and romantic Frenchmen.” Aaronovitch’s adeptness at injecting humor into the story outweighs the lessening of suspense that results, and his fans will delight in this outing. Agent: John Berlyne, Zeno Literary.

      • content: With a rumbling baritone and the deft familiarity of a series veteran, narrator Kobna Holdbrook-Smith returns to the seventh installment in the Rivers of London series. Peter Grant, wizard and detective, continues the hunt for The Faceless Man, with help of his colleague and former friend, Lesley May. As Grant meets a wide cast of characters, Holdbrook-Smith shows remarkable comfort switching between personalities of various ages, backgrounds, and accents in the many scenes of dialogue and interrogation. A measured pace helps listeners unravel the latest turns in Aaronovitch's fantasy. While prior knowledge of Grant's journey is certainly helpful at this advanced stage in the story, Holdbrook-Smith's delivery works to orient new audiences quickly.
