Listen to the first chapter of Rivers of London

It’s week two of Cityread London 2015 and we’re continuing the celebrations by sharing one of our favourite audio extracts from Rivers of London with you.

Let us set the scene for you:

It’s a cold, wet January morning, and PC Peter Grant faces an unlikely witness to an unusual murder…

Listen to the first chapter of Rivers of  London, the first book in Ben Aaronovitch’s bestselling Peter Grant series, superbly narrated by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith.

The clip’s long, but trust us, it’s worth it. And it includes Peter’s music.


Rivers of London is out now in paperback, eBook and audio.
