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.
A former Waterstones bookseller, Ben Aaronovitch cut his teeth writing for television including Doctor Who before turning to the inspiration of crime fiction to fashion Rivers of London. Storming the bestseller lists, the novel and its subsequent sequels delve into the murky underbelly of London as seen through the eyes of magician-detective Peter Grant, throwing in just a dash of magic for good measure.
'The books deliver a charming, witty and exciting romp through a magical world not all that far from our own, offering a delightfully escapist sidetrack.' -Independent.
Waterstones will be selling Ben's books at this event and he will also be signing copies.
