Demonic cars in Germany! Ben Aaronovitch & Andrew Cartmel’s AUTOWAHN is out now…


DIE FLÜSSE VON LONDON: AUTOWAHN, the first book in Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel‘s Rivers of London comic series is out now in Germany! Translated by Kerstin Fricke, the book is published by Panini. Here’s the synopsis…

Autowahn ist ein neues Abenteuer für den Londoner Polizisten Peter Grant, den Star der Bestseller-Romanreihe Die Flüsse von London von Ben Aaronovitch.

Grant gehört einer ganz besonderen Londoner Polizeieinheit an. Als Vollzeitpolizist und Teilzeitmagier bearbeitet er recht ungewöhnliche Fälle – jene, die mit Zauberei und der allgemeinen Verrücktheit, die London bis ins dunkle Mark durchdringt, zu tun haben.

Sein neuester Fall beginnt mit einem völlig harmlos erscheinenden Auto, das auf einmal Mordlust entwickelt – ohne einen Fahrer. Aber der Fall zieht Kreise und der unheimlichste Wagen Englands, einige Teenager auf Ketamin sowie eine antike Holzbank mit einer überaus finsteren Vergangenheit erweitern den mysteriösen Fall…

Published in English as BODY WORK, the series is published by Titan Comics. Here’s the English-language synopsis…

Peter Grant looks look your average London police officer, but he is actually a part-time wizard in a very elite branch of the Metropolitan Police. It’s his job to investigate those crimes that regular cops don’t like to talk about because they often involve vampires or strange things in Underground tunnels.

Peter’s latest case features a self-driving killer automobile, a Serbian refugee, the Most Haunted Car in England, a handsome drug dealer with a nice paisley scarf and a seemingly harmless wooden bench with a dark past! 

Titan Comics has also published the subsequent Rivers of London comic series: NIGHT WITCH, BLACK MOULD, DETECTIVE STORIES, CRY FOX and WATER WEED (with more on the way). Series art is by Lee Sullivan, colours by Luis Guerrero.

Ben’s Peter Grant series of novels is published in Germany by DTV. The series is published in the UK by Gollancz, in North America by Del Rey and DAW Books, and is also available widely in translation.
