DIE SILBERKAMMER IN DER CHANCERY LANE New Paperback Edition Out Now!


AMONGST OUR WEAPONS, the ninth novel in Ben Aaronovitch‘s acclaimed and internationally best-selling Rivers of London/Peter Grant series, is out now in a new German paperback edition! Published by DTV as DIE SILBERKAMMER IN DER CHANCERY LANE, translated by Christine Blum. Here’s the synopsis…

Der neunte Peter-Grant-Roman aus der Bestsellerserie ›Die Flüsse von London‹ — jetzt im Taschenbuch!

Peter Grant, der Londoner Bobby und Zauberlehrling (sowie neuerdings Praktikantinnenausbilder), hat einen neuen Fall. In den Silberkammern in der Chancery Lane hat es einen merkwürdigen Todesfall gegeben. Der Tote weist eine große Wunde im Brustkorb auf – als hätte man ihm das Herz herausgerissen. Die Ermittlungen führen zu einem zweiten Toten. Und dann zunehmend weiter über London hinaus – in völlig unerwartete räumliche, zeitliche und extradimensionale Gefilde. Dabei hat Peter eigentlich schon mehr als genug damit zu tun, sich auf ein ganz bestimmtes freudiges Ereignis vorzubereiten, das allmählich die Züge eines hochmagischen und illustren Großevents annimmt…

The Rivers of London series is published in the UK by Gollancz, and in North America by JABberwocky (1-3), DAW Books (4-) and Subterranean Press (novellas). The series is also available widely in translation. Here’s the English-language synopsis for AMONGST OUR WEAPONS

There is a world hidden underneath this great city…

The London Silver Vaults – for well over a century, the largest collection of silver for sale in the world. It has more locks than the Bank of England and more cameras than a celebrity punch-up. Not somewhere you can murder someone and vanish without a trace – only that’s what happened.

The disappearing act, the reports of a blinding flash of light and memory loss amongst the witnesses all make this a case for Detective Constable Peter Grant and the Special Assessment Unit.

Alongside their boss DCI Thomas Nightingale, the SAU find themselves embroiled in a mystery that encompasses London’s tangled history, foreign lands and, most terrifying of all, the North!

And Peter must solve this case soon because back home his partner Beverley is expecting twins any day now. But what he doesn’t know is that he’s about to encounter something – and somebody – that nobody ever expects…

Effortlessly original, endlessly inventive and hugely entertaining – step into the world of the much-loved, Number One bestselling Rivers of London series.

Ben Aaronovitch’s DIE FÜCHSE VON HAMPSTEAD HEATH is out now!


Ben Aaronovitch‘s latest novella, WHAT ABIGAIL DID THAT SUMMER is now available in Germany! The first novella to star Abigail Kamara, it’s published by DTV as DIE FÜCHSE VON HAMPSTEAD HEATH, and translated by Christine Blum. Here’s the synopsis…

Eine magisch begabte Cousine

Es ist Ferienzeit in London und Abigail, Peter Grants lästige Cousine, kann mehr oder weniger tun und lassen, was sie will. Was bei allen, die sie kennen, eigentlich die Alarmglocken schrillen lassen sollte. Doch Peter ist irgendwo auf dem Land auf Einhornjagd, sodass niemand Abigail davon abhält, magischen Unfug zu treiben – und einem Geheimnis auf die Spur zu kommen: In der Gegend von Hampstead Heath verschwinden immer wieder Teenager. Nach kurzer Zeit tauchen sie wieder auf, unverletzt, aber ohne eine Erinnerung, wo sie waren. Wer hat sie fortgelockt – und warum? Unterstützt von einer Bande sprechender (und ziemlich eingebildeter) Füchse stürzt sich Abigail ins magische Abenteuer.

The novella is published in the UK by Gollancz and in North America by Subterranean Press. Here’s the English-language synopsis…

Ghost hunter, fox whisperer, troublemaker.

It is the summer of 2013 and Abigail Kamara has been left to her own devices. This might, by those who know her, be considered a mistake.

While her cousin, police constable and apprentice wizard Peter Grant, is off in the sticks chasing unicorns, Abigail is chasing her own mystery. Teenagers around Hampstead Heath have been going missing but before the police can get fully engaged, the teens return home – unharmed but vague about where they’ve been.

Aided only by her new friend Simon, her knowledge that magic is real, and a posse of talking foxes that think they’re spies, Abigail must venture into the wilds of Hampstead to discover who is luring the teenagers and more importantly – why?

DTV has published all of Ben’s Rivers of London novels and novellas in Germany to date.

The comic series set in the same world, co-authored by Andrew Cartmel, are published in Germany by Panini (and Titan Comics in English).
