"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. But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that the Faceless Man, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long term plan. A plan that has its roots in London's two thousand bloody years of history, and could literally bring the city to its knees. To save his beloved city Peter's going to need help from his former best friend and colleague--Lesley May--who brutally betrayed him and everything he thought she believed in. And, far worse, he might even have to come to terms with the malevolent supernatural killer and agent of chaos known as Mr Punch..."--Amazon.com.… (more)

A bitchin' blend of history, magic, and police work with dashes of time travel, sex, fae, and Arthurian legend. Plus, maps. Gorgeous maps. Honestly, I haven't had this much fun since the Iron Druid Chronicles. ( )

Ein weiterer, gewohnt starker Band aus der Reihe Flüsse von London. Die Charaktere sind gewohnt liebevoll und amüsant beschrieben, die Handlung spannend und ich konnte mich mal wieder wunderbar in meine Lieblingsstadt versetzt fühlen und mir vorstellen, dass Orte, die ich selbst schon besucht habe, eine übernatürliche Komponente haben.

Den Inhalt will ich hier bewusst nicht näher beschreiben. Wer die vorherigen Bände nicht gelesen hat, kann mit diesem Buch sowieso nichts anfangen (und sollte so schnell wie möglich Band 1 lesen) und die anderen möchte ich nicht spoilern. ( )

Another fun book in this series, and while I was afraid it could be the last, there's at least one more to look forward to, and maybe finally learn the entire story of Molly? I always love the Tolkien references, and with this book, Peter has finally, albeit grudgingly, graduated to the Silmarilion. ( )

An enjoyable journey with a somewhat disappointing end to Martin Chorley. Finished on second borrowing from library with no memory from having got three quarters through the first time. ( )

I wonder if it's something that only British authors can do: write a series that continues to be engaging and fresh even after seven installments. ( )

Quotations
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.
