Travellers be prepared: you may never want to trek to London after reading this story.
Ben Aaronovitch’s third continuation of the DC Peter Grant Novel’s, Whispers Underground, is spookily exciting and gripping read.
When Peter Grant, member of New Scotland Yard’s new magical branch, is called to look for a ghost in the Baker Street tube station, he believes it is just a routine call. But from the moment he uncovers the ghostly being lurking below, things begin to unravel.
Next thing he knows, there has been a murder in the exact spot where he had seen the ghost – and magic may have been involved.
Battling distrustful police officers, unhelpful suspects and bad British weather, Peter and his colleague Lesley May bury themselves in the darkness of London’s Underground to uncover the mystery.
Having not read the first two books in the series, it took a little while to learn the characters and their interlocking history. Once the story began though, the plot begins to quickly build toward an exciting climax.
For the fans of all things spooky and supernatural – the book perfectly combines dry, sharp humour with just enough supernatural to make it realistically eerie.
