The seventh book of the bestselling Rivers of London urban fantasy series returns to the adventures of Peter Grant, detective and apprentice wizard, as he solves magical crimes in the city of London.

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 him to justice.

But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that the Faceless Man, 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....

A great installment to and potential conclusion of the Peter Grant/Rivers of London series. Though the story could easily move on from here, I'd be perfectly content if this was the end.

Peter Grant is finally growing up although he still uses very bad English :) LOL!! The latest installment of the Rivers of London series is beginning to bring closure to the "faceless man" problem.

If you enjoy police procedural's with a sci-fi/fantasy slant this is THE series you should be reading.

Excellent book in the Peter Grant series. I recommend the series in order and the audiobooks narrated by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith. The mysteries, the rules of policing and of magic are all developed with wit and skill.
