FOXGLOVE SUMMER Shortlisted for 2015 CrimeFest Award!


We have some fantastic Ben Aaronovitch-related news this afternoon: the audiobook edition of FOXGLOVE SUMMER, narrated by the always-excellent Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, has been nominated for a 2015 CrimeFest Awards! Specifically, the novel has been nominated for the Audible Sounds of Crime Award, which ‘recognizes the best crime audiobook published in both print and audio in 2014. Courtesy of sponsor Audible UK.’

The audiobook edition of the novel is published by Orion Audio, and the print editions of the Peter Grant Series are published in the UK by Gollancz. Here’s the FOXGLOVE SUMMER synopsis…

The fifth of the Sunday Times Bestselling series sees PC Grant looking for missing children. And missing London.

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…

The CrimeFest crime fiction convention will be held in Bristol, from May 14th to 17th. The winners will be announced at the CrimeFest Gala Awards Dinner on Saturday 16th May.

Many congratulations to Ben and Kobna!
