    Super!
    Ben Aaronovitch just gets better and better, I have missed Peter Grant with his sarcastic often witty descriptions, analogies, quips etc that never fail to have me laughing to myself, I love the characters, 'The Nightingale', Lesley, Molly and of course how cleverly the magical world is integrated into the very essence of London and it's tributaries.
    I found this offering a real delight, pure escapism and was glad to see Grant's nemesis 'The Faceless Man' up to no good and always it appears to be a step ahead.
    It's not all light and fun though and is pretty dark, disturbing even as the story unfolds. Our author also throws a hell of a curve ball that had me flummoxed, but in a good way, wanting the next book out already.
    Still up there as one of my favourite series to follow..
    Not a stand alone best to start with 'Midnight Riot', which is the first in the series, this is book number four.

    Ben Aaronovitch has stormed the best-seller list with his superb London crime series. A unique blend of police procedural; loving detail about the greatest character of all, London; and a dash of the supernatural. A mutilated body in Crawley. Another killer on the loose. The prime suspect is one Robert Weil: An associate of the twisted magician known as the Faceless Man? Or just a common or garden serial killer? Before PC Peter Grant can get his head round the case a town planner going under a tube train and a stolen grimoire are adding to his caseload. So far so London. But then Peter gets word of something very odd happening in Elephant and Castle....

    Strike ia a Cornish ex-military policemen, based in London, at a very low point in his life, Strike is sinking fast. I loved his clever, sharp stubborn character, especially the prickly ebb and flow relationship with his quick witted sidekick secretary Robin.
    The other plus me for for was the twisty, story line, I did not guess who did it at all! was rather shocked in the end but in a good way, having just read 2 out of three of the Larson Millennium Trilogy our author more than holds his own.
    Wonderfully paced, lovable relateable characters, and a stonking good mystery whodunit...

    Story

    Randye Kaye gives a wonderful narration that complemented the story.
    This is no fluffy thriller, there's a melancholy dark edge throughout, comprising of two stories that of a puzzling murder and of Dianes complex relationship with her mother.

    Diana Pool has to go back to work as an actress, her bank balance will have it no other way, while filming a small but crucial part, Diana gets sucked into a murder investigation, while having to cope with the death of her mother and the burgeoning grief of a beloved husband.
    Dianas character was so refreshing and forthright, no simpering, insecurities here, but a women who knows her own body and mind. I loved the way she used her acting skills to get where she wanted to be, her improvisations entertained.
    One blow after another rains down on Dianas head, I was with her all the way and have not liked a character so much in a ages. although I guessed right about the murderer I was so totally wrong at the same time.
    Your in for a treat , it's a multi-faceted plot with an intricate answer that does not really make itself known until towards the end.
    It's fast placed, well plotted and worth a listen..

    Running out of money, Diana Poole is forced to go back to the only work she knows: acting. Her much-loved husband and movie-star mother have died, and now Diana is over thirty-five. In Hollywood that means she might as well be dead. Still, a few key people remember her talent, and she lands a role in a new movie. But an actress should never get her hopes up, especially when she discovers the female lead's murdered body.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.
