I took a gamble on this one. Something caught my imagination. Oh that was a good move. What a book, brilliant and totally absorbing. The story is demanding, gruesome and relentlessly draws you in. The main character is truly Shakespearean, hard, bad and tragic. There a three linked stories and each is powerful and important. I kept wanting to get back to each one, frustrated when the book took you the next. The narrator is brilliant and adds so much to the book, his skill with voices is a delight. Read it and pay attention. It all matters.
great one man detective story. loads of wit and human interest. I will look forward to follow on books.
want more. This is what I hoped Rivers of London would have been like. It is a world war drama mixed with fantasy and mad ideas. a perfect mix and great characters. Witty, nasty and all round good. It is a book I will listen to again. Thank you for this one. well written very well read
