I try to make it a habit every couple of months to check on series that I have been reading to see if they have added publication dates or even covers to the next book in the series. I did this a couple of weeks ago and was excited to see that not only do we have a cover for one of my favorite series, but it’s release date is coming up fast. Somehow this slipped by me, but I am super glad I checked. Now I have something to look forward to in April! This is one of my favorite urban fantasy/police procedural and I can’t wait to see what is coming in this next book.
Amongst Our Weapons by Ben Aaronovitch
Rivers of London #9 (also sometimes called the Peter Grant series)
Publication Date: April 12, 2022
Summary from Goodreads:
The ninth novel of the bestselling Rivers of London urban fantasy series returns to the adventures of Peter Grant, detective and apprentice wizard, as he solves magical crimes in the city of London.
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…
Effortlessly original, endlessly inventive and hugely entertaining–step into the world of the much-loved, Number One bestselling Rivers of London series.
If you like urban fantasy and or police procedurals with great characters and really good plots this is a series that you should take a chance on. I have both read them and listened to the audiobooks and I have enjoyed them all. If you would like to read my review for the first book in the series click here: Peter Grant #1.
