Description of this Book

A brand new stand-alone novella in the Rivers of London series! Tobias Winter has been assigned to the Abteilung KDA - the Department for Complex and Unspecific Matters. Despite the intriguing department name, as Winter explains, dealing with the strange and the supernatural is 'actually 90% paperwork'. But this is a story about the other 10% of the job: the life-threatening danger part. This is a tale about the Queen of the Harvest, the October Man, and the little-known time the vineyard around Trier started to eat people . . . Winter may be P. C. Peter Grant's German counterpart, but surviving this investigation is entirely down to him . . .

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This series is brilliant! -- Teen Librarian Aaronovitch deftly balances urban fantasy with the police procedural. As for Grant, he's a wonderful blend of laconic copper and, methodically researching how magic works, full-on nerd. -- Crime Scene The Hanging Tree is definitely one of the best in the Grant/Aaronovitch pantheon. There again, so have most of the previous books in the series and the odds are the next one probably will be too. -- The Bookbag The Rivers of London series is an ever-evolving delight. * CRIME REVIEW * Peter Grant is back, and now in handy-to-read-on-the-train novella format. * STARBURST *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
