Další magický případ Petera Granta — tentokrát v KOMIKSU!

Grant patří k velmi zvláštní londýnské policejní jednotce. Je na plný úvazek policistou, na částečný čarodějem. Pracuje na velmi neobvyklých zločinech – na těch, které zavánějí magií a nejrozmanitějšími podivnostmi, které vyhřezávají z temného londýnského podsvětí. Zatím poslední případ začíná na první pohled dokonale neškodným autem a jeho záhadným vražedným řáděním – bez řidiče. A než se stihnete vzpamatovat, je na scéně bosenský uprchlík, nejstrašidelnější auto v Anglii, partička teenagerů sjetých ketaminem a zejména – prostá dřevěná židle s nepěkně temnou minulostí…

RIVERS OF LONDON: BODY WORK is published in English by Titan Comics, as are the next two story arcs in the comic series: NIGHT WITCH and BLACK MOULD. Here’s the English-language synopsis for BODY WORK

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!

The first four of Ben’s Peter Grant novels have been published in Czechia by Argo:

The series is published in the UK by Gollancz and in the US by Del Rey (1-3) and DAW Books (4-6).
