Ben Aaronovitch’s FOXGLOVE SUMMER now available in German audio!


The fifth book in Ben Aaronovitch‘s best-selling Peter Grant series, FOXGLOVE SUMMER, has been released as an audiobook in German. Published by GoyaLit as FINGERHUT-SOMMER, here’s the synopsis…

Peter Grant, Detective Constable und Zauberlehrling, fühlt sich normalerweise schon unwohl, wenn er London auch nur ein paar Kilometer weit hinter sich lässt. Doch nun wird er in die tiefste Provinz geschickt: in einen kleinen Ort in Herefordshire, wo sich Fuchs, Hase und der Dorfpolizist gute Nacht sagen. Es werden zwei Kinder vermisst und ihr Verschwinden erfolgte möglicherweise unter magischen Umständen. Zum Glück unterstützt ihn die hübsche Flussgöttin Beverley Brook bei seinen Ermittlungen.

The audiobook is narrated by Dietmar Wunder, who also provides dubbing duties for Daniel Craig’s James Bond.

DTV publishes the series in print in Germany.


The Peter Grant series is published in the UK by Gollancz, and in the US by Del Rey (#1-3) and DAW Books (#4 onwards). Here’s the English-language synopsis…

In the fifth of his bestselling series Ben Aaronovitch takes Peter Grant out of whatever comfort zone he might have found and takes him out of London – to a small village in Herefordshire where the local police are reluctant to admit that there might be a supernatural element to the disappearance of some local children. But while you can take the London copper out of London you can’t take the London out of the copper.

Travelling west with Beverley Brook, Peter soon finds himself caught up in a deep mystery and having to tackle local cops and local gods. And what’s more all the shops are closed by 4pm…
