Lies Sleeping

The Seventh Rivers of London novel

By Ben Aaronovitch

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

The seventh PC Grant mystery is here, continuing bestselling series of London adventures. That's the way to do it . . .

Martin Chorley, aka the Faceless Man, wanted for multiple counts of murder, fraud and crimes against humanity, has been unmasked and is on the run.

Peter Grant, Detective Constable and apprentice wizard, now plays a key role in an unprecedented joint operation to bring Chorley to justice.

But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that Chorley, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long term plan.

A plan that has its roots in London's two thousand bloody years of history, and could literally bring the city to its knees.

To save his beloved city Peter's going to need help from his former best friend and colleague - Lesley May - who brutally betrayed him and everything he thought she believed in. And, far worse, he might even have to come to terms with the malevolent supernatural killer and agent of chaos known as Mr Punch . . .

Once you start, you'll find a London that's just dying to be explored. — DEN OF GEEK
Aaronovitch has outdone himself this time - it's the best book of the series thus far, and that's no mean feat. — IRRESPONSIBLE READER
Aaronovitch is writing proper police procedural novels, which are at the same time proper novels about the myths and legends of London. His characters are ones you'll want to come back to, his plots are convincingly contemporary and his humour is well-judged. Altogether, this is one of the most satisfying series currently available. — MORNING STAR
It feels like Aaronovitch is scaling up to something big and series ending. But not too soon, please, because getting there is so delightful. — LOCUS MAGAZINE
