We’re very happy to report that audiobook aficionados in Germany are now able to get Ben Aaronovitch‘s LIES SLEEPING in audio! Published by GoyaLiT as DIE GLOCKE VON WHITECHAPEL, and narrated by Dietmar Wunder, here’s the synopsis…
Constable und Zauberlehrling Peter Grant steht vor seiner größten Herausforderung: Das Schicksal Londons steht auf dem Spiel. Der gesichtslose Magier, verantwortlich für grauenvolle übernatürliche Verbrechen, ist zwar endlich demaskiert und auf der Flucht. Doch er verfolgt einen perfiden Plan, der ganz London in den Abgrund stürzen könnte. Um den Gesichtslosen zu stoppen, muss Peter all seine magischen Kräfte aufbieten – und einen bösen alten Bekannten kontaktieren: Mr. Punch, den mörderischen Geist des Aufruhrs und der Rebellion.
LIES SLEEPING is the seventh novel in Ben’s internationally best-selling, critically-acclaimed Peter Grant/Rivers of London series. GoyaLiT has published all of them in German audio to date, with DTV publishing the print and eBook editions.
A fabulous new adventure, London under threat, and the scent of magic in the air… it must be a new Rivers of London mystery…
Martin Chorley, aka 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 Chorley to justice.
But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that Chorley, 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…
Ben’s most recent book, THE OCTOBER MAN, is set in the same universe as the Peter Grant novels and novella, but stars a new protagonist and primary location: Tobias Winter in Germany. The novella is out now, published in the UK by Gollancz, in the US by Subterranean Press, and is forthcoming in Germany.
