Broken Homes

GoodReads "It's a police mantra that all members of the public are guilty of something, but some members of the public are more guilty than others"Peter Grant in Broken Homes ★★★★ Broken Homes is the fourth PC Grant (though I keep calling this series Rivers of London) novel, the next book Foxglove Summer is due...

Whispers Under Ground

GoodReads ★★★★ In Peter Grant's third adventure, the ethnically challenged wizard-apprentice detective constable is quite literally driven to the dark depths of London as he is trying to solve the murder on the son of an American senator which may involve some weird shit (e.g. Magic)...I'm not too familiar with Urban Fantasy, but from what...

Moon Over Soho

GoodReads ★★★ I had really enjoyed reading the first book of this series, Rivers of London (also known as Midnight Riot), so I was obviously also very curious to this second book, Moon over Soho.Unfortunately I didn't like it as much as I liked the first book. Perhaps it was because I don't know enough... Continue Reading →

Dead Nasty

GoodReads ★★★ A girl found murdered in a dustbin means the start of the next Calladine & Bayliss investigation. The murder strongly resembles an old case. That murderer has been recently released. Surely, that could not have been a coincidence? Another police procedural, and as always a quick read. One thing that started to bother... Continue Reading →

Dead & Buried

GoodReads ★★★ A mysterious 40 year old diary seems somehow connected to a recent string of murders which start after the re-emergence of a local villain. It is the setting of the fifth book in the Calladine & Bayliss series. They are nice if a bit short police procedurals. In this case Bayliss is on... Continue Reading →

Dead Lost

GoodReads ★★★ Another one in the Calladine & Bayliss series. This time, they have trouble to find the body. These are quite simple and uncomplicated police procedurals that I enjoy to read from time to time. There is also a lot of the personal lives of the main detectives thrown in, which could have been... Continue Reading →

Dead List

GoodReads ★★★ Dead List is the third major case for Calladine & Bayliss. Another string of dreadful murders, all linked through tarot cards. I cannot help but wonder when I read this, why does the murderer make it so easy to connect the murders? If one wanted to stay uncaught, would it not be way... Continue Reading →

Dead Silent

GoodReads ★★★ Dead Silent continues the story of Calladine and Bayliss through another gruesome case. As this series is shaping up to be a full series of rather short-but-enjoyable police procedurals, I couldn't help but wonder whether the focus was not a little too much on the personal lives of the main characters. Both their... Continue Reading →

Cry Fox

GoodReads ★★★★ It is no secret I'm a fan of the Rivers of London series and one of the things I like is the multiple ways in which the story is told, e.g. here the graphic novel. Like its predecessors it is good in keeping you entertained while waiting for the next novel in the... Continue Reading →

The Hanging Tree

GoodReads ★★★★ One of the things I really worry too much about when it comes to books is their height. I want my series to fit together and have on occasions taken a ruler into the bookstore to make sure I bought the right one. It completely beats me why there are so many different... Continue Reading →

Detective Stories

GoodReads ★★★★ The Rivers of London/Peter Grant is one of my favorite ongoing series and one of the things I like about it is the many different ways the stories are being told (novels, shorts, comics and there is also a free audio-exclusive). Also, it is British.Detective stories includes four short stories of Peter's Falcon... Continue Reading →

A Rare Book Of Cunning Device

GoodReads ★★★★ A Rare Book of Cunning Device is a short audiobook free on Audible that is a part of the ever expanding universe around PC Peter Grant and his 'Falcon' adventures. I like how the series is spread across all different ways of reading (besides the main books and some short stories, the graphic... Continue Reading →
