Peter Grant, having become the first English apprentice wizard in fifty years, must immediately deal with two different but ultimately inter-related cases. In one he must find what is possessing ordinary people and turning them into vicious killers, and in the second he must broker a peace between the two warring gods of the River Thames.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When something strange and inexplicable occurs in London, the Special Assessment Unit is called in to deal with it. Peter Grant is an officer of this branch and the star of Aaronovitch's Rivers of London novels, quite popular in the UK but less well-known stateside. This first comics adaptation introduces Grant and his impressively diverse supporting cast as they investigate a bizarre case of murder by car. Led to a junk dealer, Grant and his nonmagical partner, Sahra Guleed, find that the dealer has inadvertently sold off various pieces of a haunted car, which must be tracked down before they take their drivers on the worst kind of ride. The magic or falcon, as police slang would have it is pleasingly grounded here, creating a world of subtle intricacies rather than dazzling fireworks, and the supernatural is blended into the police procedural with satisfying realism. The characters are familiar but engaging enough, and the art does much to make each face distinctive and expressive as well as give the story its down-to-earth sturdiness.--Karp, Jesse Copyright 2016 Booklist"
