Probationary Constable Peter Grant dreams of being a detective in London’s Metropolitan Police. Too bad his superior plans to assign him to the Case Progression Unit, where the biggest threat he’ll face is a paper cut. But Peter’s prospects change in the aftermath of a puzzling murder, when he gains exclusive information from an eyewitness who happens to be a ghost. Peter’s ability to speak with the lingering dead brings him to the attention of Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, who investigates crimes involving magic and other manifestations of the uncanny. Now, as a wave of brutal and bizarre murders engulfs the city, Peter is plunged into a world where gods and goddesses mingle with mortals and a long-dead evil is making a comeback on a rising tide of magic.

Lucky for ...

4.0 Called Something Else in UK Pubs: Rivers of London
So I picked this book since it was published in 2011 and met the criteria for my BL space. I am glad I finally got around to reading it, since I've been meaning to for more than two months. I liked the main character, Peter Grant. I also enjoyed his teacher/master Nightingale and the weird setup the...

4.0 Midnight Riot (Peter Grant/Rivers of London #1) (Audiobook)
Oh, boy, that was fun! And funny! This is like the UK's answer to Harry Dresden - if Harry was way more mellow and his dog was a slipper with ears. Harry's dog might be named Mouse, but he ain't tiny. :) Toby still has it where it counts though. Survey says: Harry kicks ass; Peter is swell bloke. ...

by Ben Aaronovitch This one grabbed me right away with its offbeat humour and a quirky situation where an off-duty cop finds a body in Covent Garden and meets a ghost who is witness to the murder. The tone of the writing made what was actually a fairly long first chapter fly by and make me wonder ...
