BODY AND SOUL   The song. That’s what London constable and sorcerer’s apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho’s 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body—a sure sign that something about the man’s death was not at all natural but instead supernatural. Body and soul—they’re also what Peter will risk as he investigates a pattern of similar deaths in and around Soho. With the help of his superior officer, Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, the last registered wizard in England, and the assistance of beautiful jazz aficionado Simone Fitzwilliam, Peter will uncover a deadly magical menace—one that leads right to his own doorstep and to the squandered promise of a young jazz musician: a talented trumpet player named Richard “Lord” Grant—otherwise known as Peter’s dear old dad.

3.5 Darkest London Square
I love the tone and humor in the novel. Peter Grant is a great guy to hang out with. The music riffs were nice too. Yet, the big reveal was something that anyone, including a bug, could have seen coming and quite frankly, the fact that Grant didn't see it was stupid.I did like the morality debate at...

3.5 Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch (audiobook)
Series: Peter Grant #2 Musicians are dropping dead after gigs and there's a whiff of magic around their bodies... I really like these audiobooks; Kobna Holdbrook-Smith does a great job. There's only one voice that I have trouble understanding for long speeches but I guess that's kind of intentio...

4.0 A strong follow-up novel.
When I think back over the first books in this series, I remember them being a lot of fun -- pretty funny, really, with moments of tension and drama. I don't know why I think that. Listening to the first two have been a good corrective. Yes, Peter is witty, and some of what he does while learning ...
