THE HANGING TREE is out tomorrow in the UK!


The wait is almost over! Ben Aaronovitch‘s highly-anticipated sixth Peter Grant novel is published tomorrow in the UK! THE HANGING TREE brings the action back to London after Peter’s adventure into the countryside in FOXGLOVE SUMMER. Published by Gollancz, here’s the synopsis…

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…

Gollancz has published the whole Peter Grant series of novels to date in the UK: RIVERS OF LONDON, MOON OVER SOHO, WHISPERS UNDERGROUND, BROKEN HOMES, FOXGLOVE SUMMER and THE HANGING TREE.

The series is published in the US by Del Rey (#1-3) and DAW Books (#4-6), and THE HANGING TREE will be published in North America in January 2017. The series has been published widely in translations — see Ben’s author page for more information. THE HANGING TREE is also scheduled to be published in Germany by DTV asĀ DER GALGEN VON TYBURN, in February 2017.
