Rezension folgt. Spoiler: geiler Scheiß. Echt mal. Und jetzt wieder warten aufs nächste.... ( )

As others have noted, while this book does feature the final climactic battle with Martin ("The Faceless Man") Chorley it doesn't seem to be as important as one might have thought, considering how much the previous books in this series were invested in this long chase. Perhaps the death of Chorley's daughter previously was the real climax of this story arc (I'd still like a story from her perspective). That said those who have been following this series will be happy with this book and one can only speculate what Aaronovitch will do with Peter, now that he is basically a functioning adult. With the forthcoming side adventure set in Germany perhaps the goal will be to generally broaden this universe. Also, I was somewhat bemused that my old home town (Cleveland, Ohio) was invoked in the course of the story. ( )

At last, a big confrontation with the Faceless Man. I honestly didn’t have a huge reaction to this one—it was a perfectly consistent entry into the series, with attention to rigorous policework and realistic-for-the-setup dead ends. My reaction suggests that it was indeed the right time to close a chapter on the Faceless Man, though in doing so there’s a rather unusual alliance. ( )

Bit twisty, this one. ( )

Peter is now a Detective constable and they're still on the hunt for Martin Chorley, the Faceless Man, and they're getting closer to him. He has a plan that could change the future and Peter is going to need help from everywhere he can get it. What you get is what Peter sees mostly and sometimes he doesn't see anything. Bells feature and more of they mythos of London and it's all quite complicated.

Interesting to see Peter progress through his career and how things change for him and also how his relationship with Beverly changes.

I enjoyed this as always and look forward to the next instalment. ( )

This book is dedicated to all the people whose job it is to rush into danger when everybody else is running in the opposite direction.
First words
It’s tedious stuff, but it all goes into the great mill of HOLMES-2; the better to grind the flour of Truth and produce the wholesome bread of Justice.
