THE HANGING TREE is a Sunday Times Bestseller!


We are delighted to report that Ben Aaronovitch‘s sixth Peter Grant novel, THE HANGING TREE is #5 on the Sunday TimesĀ bestseller list! The highly-anticipated novel was published last week in the UK by Gollancz. Here’s the synopsis…

The sixth outing for PC Peter Grant in this bestselling series sees him back in London and facing the terrifying legacy of London’s hangings.

Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of PC Peter Grant or the Folly, even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But Lady Ty’s daughter was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favour.

Plunged into the alien world of the super-rich, where the basements are bigger than the house and dangerous, arcane items are bought and sold on the open market, a sensible young copper would keep his head down and his nose clean. But this is Peter Grant we’re talking about.

He’s been given an unparalleled opportunity to alienate old friends and create new enemies at the point where the world of magic and that of privilege intersect. Assuming he survives the week…

The novel is due to be published in North America by DAW Books in January 2017.
