Rivers of London Volume 1: Body Work
Grant’s latest case begins with a perfectly innocent car on a homicidal killing spree – without a driver. But then, before you know it, there’s a Bosnian refugee, the Most Haunted Car in England, a bunch of teenagers loaded on Ketamine and a seemingly-harmless wooden bench with the darkest of pasts…
Rivers of London Volume 2: Night Witch
The daughter of a powerful Russian oligarch has vanished from her home, apparently taken by a mythical forest creature fresh out of Russian legend. To ‘encourage’ Peter’s cooperation in finding the missing child, his boss Nightingale is kidnapped – and Peter finds himself caught in a tangled web of intrigue where nothing is as it seems!
Rivers of London Volume 3: Black Mould
Peter never saw himself in pest control – but that’s exactly where he finds himself when a killer, sentient, living fungus goes on a rampage of vengeance using its victims’ worst fears against them.
Rivers of London Volume 4: Detective Stories
Four self-contained magical crimes, ripped from the streets of supernatural London. As PC Peter Grant faces his gruelling Detective exam, forcing him to relive the strangest cases of his career. From foiling an aspiring god to confronting a Virtual Flasher, Peter’s police history has been anything but conventional; whether that’s chasing down ‘Falcon’ crimes with the aid of modern technology, or confronting timeless villainy with his magical skill-set. Does Peter have what it takes… or will DI Chopra judge him unsuitable for a badge?
Rivers of London Volume 5: Cry Fox
Child kidnapping is already an appalling crime, but in the latest case for Detective Constable Peter Grant – newly promoted in the ranks of London’s Metropolitan Police, but with a lot still to learn about wizarding – things take a truly dark turn when the victims become the prey in a homicidal hunt that Grant and members of the Folly must stop!
