Lies Sleeping - Ben Aaronovitch

The Peter Grant series continues to be one of my most satisfying urban fantasy reads.

 

 

Peter's slightly off mainstream centre but ever so accurate view of the world is intoxicating, whether he's commenting on architectural faux pas, describing how rooms can be lies told by their inhabitants, critiquing the dynamics that result in police officers using terms like "pro-active, intelligence-led operations" or looking deeper into the history of London, his thoughts are intoxicating.

 

 

Add to that a plot filled with threat, mystery and humour and I'm not at all surprised that I'm halfway through this book less than a day after starting it.
