V7 Rivers of London

October 1957. Thomas Nightingale, Chief Inspector and wizarding legend, reunited with an old friend he met during the Second World War. The friend, Angus Strallen, was in pursuit of a serial killer, Professor Uwe Fischer, a Luftwaffe pilot who settled in Cumberland after the war to work in a factory. Fischer had been targeting women of different cultures which led him – and Strallen – to the cultural melting pot of London. Seemingly always one step ahead of the Metropolitan Police, Fischer kept evading capture, putting his own magical powers and good political relations to use. But as the German scientists read American comic books in his hotel room, Strallen’s partner in crime (and romance), Dr. Jacqueline Frye, acquired a very helpful package from Fischer’s home in Cumberland which was soon on its way to London: a scarf. Paired with the powerful nose of a bloodhound named Hesperus, Nightingale and Strallen’s hunt for Fischer is afoot…

V7 Rivers of London

Peter Grant has being doing some research on an old case in the annexe of the Folly’s library. He has discovered that his mentor, Thomas Nightingale, befriended a man named Angus Strallen during the Second World War after Strallen witnessed Nightingale fell an enemy aircraft with a wave of his hand. The pair were reunited in October 1957 as they attempted to track down a dangerous murderer who targeted women: one Professor Uwe Fischer. The ex-Luftwaffe-pilot- turned-scientist remained one step ahead of Nightingale and Strallen at every turn, seemingly surrounded by powerful allies. With the detectives hot on his trail after his attempted murder of Asterid Bivalacqua, Fischer decided to leave London and head back to Cumbria. But returning to his day job at Windscale, an atomic reactor plant in the North West, could prove to be even more deadly for the unsuspecting people of Britain…

V6 Rivers of London

The Special Assessment Unit. Sounds innocuous enough. But when you hear this unit of London’s Metropolitan Police investigates the class of crimes codenamed ‘Falcon’, your ears might prick up. Dig a little deeper, and you might discover words like ‘wizard’ and ‘magic’ and ‘little crocodiles’. Your conclusion might be that someone is taking the piss. But perhaps the investigations by Detective Constable Peter Grant – newly promoted cop and trainee wizard – and his colleagues at the Folly (HQ of SAU) – really are conducted in the shadowy infraworld of London’s mythological past – and present. Among Peter’s associates are the Rivers of London – the ancient gods and goddesses of the capital’s waterways (one of them is also his girlfriend, Beverley) who, while often helpful, also skirt that fine line between good and, er, not so good. ‘Rivers of London: Water Weed’ takes place after the events of ‘The Hanging Tree’ and ‘Cry Fox’.

V6 Rivers of London

There’s a disturbing new drug on the streets of London. An unusual and powerful weed, branded with a distinctive logo of a woman’s face covered in tattoos. With strange, vestigia-like side effects for the magically inclined, Detective Peter Grant and DCI Thomas Nightingale are on the case. Using the Thames as a handy link for delivering drugs to buyers might seem like a good idea, but two unfortunate dealers caught the attention of young water goddesses, namely Chelsea and Olympia, who used their powers to steal time for themselves (of course). But in doing so, they’ve provoked the anger of the mastermind behind the cartel. Having already apprehended her two unwitting goons in Bev’s back garden, our heroes are now in the firing line for her escalating campaign of revenge.

V6 Rivers of London

Detective Inspector Peter Grant was right to believe there was something off about the mysterious new drug doing the rounds at parties. Goblin girl, Lana Blanding, confirmed it to be “werelight weed”, seemingly grown by magic. That’s as much information as Lana was willing to part with for free. Clever girl, Lana – but not clever enough to know that working both sides would land her in hospital. The werelight weed is being distributed by boat along the Thames, but the main source is still unknown. What Peter does know, however, is that there is an office in Teddington which acts as a staging area for distributing the drugs. He also knows that the dealers are scared shitless of their supplier: a woman covered in face tattoos known as the Hoodette.

V6 Rivers of London

It’s all gone to pot! London’s waterways have been overrun by a brutal and beautiful queenpin of crime. A menacing figure known only as the Hoodette is sending her henchmen along the river to distribute her new magically-produced drug. Unfortunately for them, the waterways are home to the Rivers of London – ancient gods and goddesses of the British capital who just so happen to have a very close relationship with new promoted Detective Constable Peter Grant and his mentor, Thomas Nightingale. In a gripping tale of cat and mouse from Rivers of London, author Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel (Doctor Who, The Vinyl Detective), with art by Lee Sullivan (Doctor Who, Transformers), Peter Grant encounters goblin girls and paintball-savvy goddesses as he tries to uncover the Hoodette’s true identity and find her supply.

He may now be a Detective Constable, but Peter Grant still has a long way to go before he can become London’s second fully-qualified wizard policeman (the first being his boss, Inspector Thomas Nightingale). Still, no peace for the wicked.

In the meantime, the boys in black – neither would be seen dead in a blue suit while on duty – are looking to keep safe the Russian witch, Varvara, who has a rather large price on her head after helping the police with their enquiries… An all-new Rivers of London story written by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel, taking place after the events of the novel ‘The Hanging Tree’ and comic series ‘Detective Stories’.

V5 Rivers of London

Little Anna Nestorovna Yakunima has been kidnapped. Again. But this time it wasn’t Ludmila, her mother. Ludmila is in prison for the first bungled kidnapping but is still expected to come up with the ransom. The problem is that Anna wasn’t the only target.

V5 Rivers of London

The kidnapping of two young girls is not what it seems. On the surface it looked like an attempt to ransom the daughter of the imprisoned wife of a Russian oligarch – but then why was Abigail, apprentice wizard to Peter Grant, also taken? And why, after also kidnapping his vixen and cub, were the moneyed miscreants using Dan Russell – one of London’s more unusual talking foxes – as bait? Abigail, apparently poor prey material, has now been joined in captivity by another kidnapped associate of The Folly – Detective Sergeant Guleed, who is apparently considered much greater sport. Now Peter and his boss are going to have to leave the confines of London to take their chances in the green and unpleasant countryside, to track the kidnappers down… An all-new Rivers of London story written by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel, taking place after the events of the novel ‘The Hanging Tree’ and comic series ‘Detective Stories’.

Through the nefarious actions of vulpine fay Reynard (to be considered a cunning bastard), aided by talking fox Danny Russell (forced into service after his mate and cub were kidnapped, so to be considered generally a pretty good canid acting under duress), Anna (daughter of imprisoned Russian oligarch), Abigail (trainee wizard – nay apprentice – to The Folly) and Detective Sergeant Guleed (Muslim ninja) have been kidnapped. While the principal reason would seem to be ransom by the blackmail of Anna’s parents, Abigail and Guleed are wanted for an entirely different purpose – they are about to find out what it feels like to be at the sharp end of a fox hunt…
