Description

Whispers Under Ground Doctor Who Screenwriter Ben Aaronovitch's superbly entertaining supernatural crime series has, with its witty one-liners and wonderfully erudite take on London, won a legion of fans in double quick time.

Peter Grant is learning magic fast. And its just as well - he's already had run ins with the deadly supernatural children of the Thames and a terrifying killer in Soho. Progression in the Police Force is less easy. Especially when you work in a department of two. A department that doesn't even officially exist. A department that if you did describe it to most people would get you laughed at. And then there's his love life. The last person he fell for ended up seriously dead. It wasn't his fault, but still.

Now something horrible is happening in the labyrinth of tunnels that make up the tube system that honeycombs the ancient foundations of London. And delays on the Northern line is the very least of it. Time to call in the Met's Economic and Specialist Crime Unit 9, aka 'The Folly'. Time to call in PC Peter Grant, Britains Last Wizard.

    This series of books provide light relief to a mundane life and also explain in minute detail bits of the London I thought I knew but didn’t. Great stuff.
  • Geeky nostalgia with an expanding universe

    Well, where to begin? I bought the first book based on the 99p offer, and that was it.... hooked, I’ve read each one in order and can’t wait to read more, intelligent and witty writing and some references that made me look back at my childhood a-la Spacehulk.... even if you have no idea what that means, give it a go. Oh, and for those of you who crave some romance, there’s a bit of will they / won’t they. Deserving of 5 stars in my opinion.

    Just finished Whispers. A great continuation of the characters and plots from the previous two books. So if you liked Rivers and Moon, there'll be no disappointment here. I'm not sure it would stand up so well on its own and I found it to have a gentler pace and less excitement/urgency than Moon. But very enjoyable nonetheless. Apart from being fascinated by the detailed London setting, I love the pop/geek culture references; almost spilled my drink at the Space Hulk reference a year before the computer game reworking of that Games Workshop/1980s classic... So all in all I'm looking forward to the next instalment and finding out whatever is going on on the other side of the river...
  • A good read.

    Another book in the River's series, a little far-fetched at times, but maintains a nice quick pace as it goes along and that's exactly what I was looking for with this book, so all in all, a good entertaining read.

    Another galloping good tail. The characters are engaging and the story is well crafted. Will be eagerly waiting for the next tail. One of those books that you just have to know what happened.
  • Last in series can't wait for the next

    These books just got better and the characters gained more substance as the series has progressed. I love the mix of thriller and supernatural. The writer is so witty and the books are so descriptive that I can really imagine the scene.
  • Simply great

    Aaronovitch has ensnared me with his writings. Yes at times it strays into some dodgy, colloquial, trying slightly hard to be hip prose, but it is ostensibly a good read. One of those rare things, a series that actually makes you want to keep reading. I devoured this book in one sitting. I simply couldn't put it down. A bomb scare would not have moved me from my seat. I don't want to go about the plot. I want you to read it for yourself.
