FALSE VALUE, Ben Aaronovitch‘s eighth Peter Grant / Rivers of London novel has enters the Sunday Times Bestseller list at #1!
Massive congratulations to Ben on this amazing milestone! Very well-deserved!
FALSE VALUE is out now in the UK (Gollancz) and North America (DAW Books). Here’s the synopsis…
Peter Grant is facing fatherhood, and an uncertain future, with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm.
Leaving his old police life behind, he takes a job with Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner’s new London start up: the Serious Cybernetics Corporation.
Drawn into the orbit of Old Street’s famous ‘silicon roundabout’, Peter must learn how to blend in with people who are both civilians and geekier than he is. Compared to his last job, Peter thinks it should be a doddle.
But magic is not finished with the Met’s first trainee wizard in fifty years…
Because a secret is hiding somewhere in the building. A technology that stretches back to Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, and forward to the future of artificial intelligence. A secret that is just as magical as it technological – and twice as dangerous.
We are delighted to report that Ben Aaronovitch‘s sixth Peter Grant novel, THE HANGING TREE is #5 on the Sunday Times 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.
