When two young girls go missing in rural Herefordshire, police constable and wizard-in-training Peter Grant is sent out of London to check that nothing supernatural is involved. It's purely routine?Nightingale, Peter's superior, thinks he'll be done in less than a day. But Peter's never been one to walk away from someone in trouble, so when nothing overtly magical turns up he volunteers his services to the local police, who need all the help they can get. But because the universe likes a joke as much as the next sadistic megalomaniac, Peter soon comes to realize that dark secrets underlie the picturesque fields and villages of the countryside and there might just be work for Britain's most junior wizard after all. Soon Peter's in a vicious race against time, in a world where the boundaries between reality and fairy have never been less clear.

Another great book in a consistently good series. Start with "Midnight Riot" to get the full effect.

The author continues with his narrators strong voice, drawing you deeper into this magical world where anything is possible. However, this volume drifts slightly further from what seems to be the overarching plot of the series, as well as from the heart of London, and for me loses something by it. I continue to look forwards to future installments however, as this series is much to good to put down after one book that only marginally failed to meet the previously high set of expectations.

The most recent story in the Rivers of London series. I can't get enough of this cleverly written and amusing slightly paranomal mystery series set in London.
