Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch

So, I've just finished the second book in the Peter Grant series, Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch. Although I think I just preferred the first book, Rivers of London, it is still brilliant and I loved it!

Moon Over Soho starts a short time after the conclusion of Rivers of London, when Peter Grant, the hero of this series, is visiting his "friend" Lesley at her parents home. On his way back, he gets called into a case where a jazz musician has died, supposedly of a heart attack, but the pathologist who performed the autopsy called Peter in to have a look as it had all the hallmarks of a magical death. Peter has to rush all over Soho and even going to exotic locations, like Oxford and Norwich, while trying to solve this bizarre case. And, of course, while investigating, he falls for a young lady who was involved with the musician before his death.

It is funny, the conclusion is fantastic and leaves you desperate for more, and the action barely stops. Take a bow, Mr Aaronovitch, because you deserve it for this book!

Star rating: 5 from 5 - still magical!
