Rivers of London
CSI meets Harry Potter in this fantastic new graphic novel from Ben Aaronovitch, writer of the bestselling Rivers of London supernatural police procedural crime novel series! Something dark and slimy is dripping through the walls of suburban London. Not the usual stuff that smells funny and can be hell on the lungs, this mould is possessed by some dark power full of bad intentions. Looks like it's another case for London's one and only trainee wizard cop, Police Constable Peter Grant, and his reluctant partner, Sahra Guleed! An all-new adventure for Ben Aaronvitch's laconic, way-past-cool but slightly geeky trainee wizard and budding detective, Peter Grant! Tying directly into the Rivers of London continuity, set between Foxglove Summer and The Hanging Tree Aaronovitch is joined by Doctor Who writer Andrew Cartmel for this gripping new series.

    In this graphic novel set in the Rivers of London world Peter Grant and his non-magical police colleague Sahra Guleed deal with some mysterious black mould. Except this isn't the normal bad for your lungs type mould, this is a slightly sentient magical mould. I thought this was perhaps Aaronovitch's most original work yet. I've never come across an idea even vaguely like this before. You've got fights with the mould but a mystery in where it came from and what it wants. The solution made sense a In this graphic novel set in the Rivers of London world Peter Grant and his non-magical police colleague Sahra Guleed deal with some mysterious black mould. Except this isn't the normal bad for your lungs type mould, this is a slightly sentient magical mould. I thought this was perhaps Aaronovitch's most original work yet. I've never come across an idea even vaguely like this before. You've got fights with the mould but a mystery in where it came from and what it wants. The solution made sense and actually had some real emotion in it too. This might well have been the funniest Rivers of London work too. The chemistry between Grant and Guleed is fabulous and there's a hilarious throwback to the 'Body Work' graphic novel with Nightingale. The best Rivers of London graphic novel so far, a really fun read.

    Another absolute corker Rivers of London graphic novel.This time magical black mould is creating havoc even inside the Folly itself.Whilst Peter and Sahra battle the mould, Nightingale and the mechanic, Tom Debden from "Body Work" are clearing up a little problem left over from that story. To whit, one possessed ice cream van. A worthy inclusion to the Rivers of London canon.

    Okay, I didn't really read the BOOK. But I have read all five floppys, and just didn't want them listed individually on my GR list. I love Rivers of London. So MUCH. This is a nice addition, shorter than a novel, but adding to the characterizations we see in the novels. It's only too bad this wasn't farther away in release from the last novel. Now I have to wait even longer for more.
