[Foxglove Summer]: A Spoiler Discussion in 75 Books Challenge for 2015 (April 2015)

Reviews

Such a good series! In this volume, our detectives are investigating black mould that seems to have a life of its own and makes people crazy. Some of the characters from the first two volumes are in it but not as much as the two detectives. Great art and really good story. Looking forward to seeing what happens with the next volume!

Good and interesting through and through. Plan to try the next in series at least.

Short but entertaining story in the usual wry and amusing style of this series. Ghosts appear to passengers....who then lose all memory of their conversation. Clearly a case for the Falcon Unit.

I’ve read the previous installments of the Rivers of London series before and enjoyed them. In this volume, our protagonist, a London detective who has found himself sucked into magical investigations, is called to Herefordshire with his goddess girlfriend to investigate the disappearance of two girls. There’s lots of rural/urban tension, some glorious but not explicit erotic moments, and a look at how the boundary between our world and Faerie might manifest in the twenty-first century. There’s also a really good sense of place within Herefordshire’s geography. I think you could enjoy this book without having read the previous five books, but you’d enjoy it more if you had.… (more)
