Amongst Our Weapons: The Brand New Rivers Of London Novel | Ben Aaronovitch
6 posts | 4 read | 3 to read
PRE-ORDER THE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED BRAND NEW NOVEL IN THE #1 BESTSELLING RIVERS OF LONDON NOW There is a world hidden underneath this great city... The London Silver Vaults - for well over a century, the largest collection of silver for sale in the world. It has more locks than the Bank of England and more cameras than a celebrity punch-up. Not somewhere you can murder someone and vanish without a trace - only that's what happened. The disappearing act, the reports of a blinding flash of light and memory loss amongst the witnesses all make this a case for Detective Constable Peter Grant and the Special Assessment Unit. Alongside their boss DCI Thomas Nightingale, the SAU find themselves embroiled in a mystery that encompasses London's tangled history, foreign lands and, most terrifying of all, the North! And Peter must solve this case soon because back home his partner Beverley is expecting twins any day now. But what he doesn't know is that he's about to encounter something - and somebody - that nobody ever expects...

I listened to this as an audio book & the narration was fantastic!

Always so satisfying - Aaronovitch keeps the plots fresh & the history lessons engaging while keeping the fans happy. Such a snappy writer, with lots of wit & a great ear & warm heart for his characters. This chapter contains possibly the funniest Monty Python reference I've ever come across (I lol'ed!) & my girl Beverly gets her time in the spotlight - as is only right. LOVE.

Dragon Peter Grant and Beverly- one of my favourite couples 💚🐉 2w

“… but then most plain clothes officers aren‘t called upon to face down unicorns, sentient mould and the occasional carnivorous tree.”

I love the random humour in this series.

KathyWheeler My husband and I are listening to this right now,and we were saying that the random humor is one of the things we love about this series. (edited) 3w
Libby1 @KathyWheeler - me too. That and fun cultural references to the Lord of the Rings or Silmarillion (spelling? 🤷🏼‍♀️) and Doctor Who! 3w
KathyWheeler @Libby1 Yes! 😊 3w

I really enjoyed this 9th installment in the Rivers of London series. This is a series I always both listen to as well as read because I love the performances of Kobna Holdbrook-Smith so much. My only complaint is that Nightingale seemed underutilized in this book. I hope to see more of him in the next one.

Libby1 I have this but haven‘t read it yet. So exciting! 4w
Ericalambbrown @Libby1 I really enjoyed it! I hope you do, too. I‘ll look forward to seeing what you think - I felt like there was some unexpected niftiness with some of the recurring characters that made me happy 😌 4w
jackilynn I keep waiting for this one to become available at my library. 4w
Libby1 Excellent! 3w

I‘m totally in love with Peter Grant and the whole Rivers of London world. All the gang is back including, a surprise. Paranormal shenanigans ( and a couple of grisly murders) ensue. The actor who reads these stories is phenomenal. Not the best in the series but very enjoyable.
