Another gripping and hilarious adventure through the secret streets of London. A tour of what remains and an insight into what once was with a liberal sprinkling of folklore, myth and violent crime. Each of Ben Aaronovitch's previous Peter Grant novels have been Sunday Times Top Ten HB bestsellers and The Hanging Tree looks set to repeat the feat.
The Hanging Tree was the Tyburn gallows which stood where Marble Arch stands today. Oxford Street was the last trip of the condemned. Somethings don't change. The place has a bloody and haunted legacy and now blood has returned to the empty Mayfair mansions of the world's super-rich. And blood mixed with magic is a job for Peter Grant.
Peter Grant is back as are Nightingale et al at the Folly and the various river gods, ghosts and spirits who attach themselves to England's last wizard and the Met's reluctant investigator of all things supernatural.

I enjoy Peter Grant's company. I'd read the books even if there was no other plot that following Peter around and seeing his disdainful reaction to the rich and tasteless, his fierce opposition to the abuse of power, his passion for architecture, his dismissal of history written only from the victor...
Anyone who knows me already probably knows that I really like this series of books, while anyone who knows this series also probably knows there'd been a bit of a wait for The Hanging Tree to arrive, after the publication of Foxglove Summer in 2014. The Hanging Tree pretty much runs straight on a...
I lost track of how many times a certain retailer let me know that my pre-order for this had been rescheduled, but now a little more than 2 years after The Rivers of London most recently flowed through these books, The Hanging Tree is out (in parts of the world, anyway). I'm firmly in the camp of th...
