False Value

False Value

The hugely anticipated brand new RIVERS OF LONDON novel…

Peter Grant is facing fatherhood, and an uncertain future, with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm. Rather than sit around, he takes a job with émigré Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner’s brand new London start up – the Serious Cybernetics Company.

Drawn into the orbit of Old Street’s famous ‘silicon roundabout’, Peter must learn how to blend in with people who are both civilians and geekier than he is. Compared to his last job, Peter thinks it should be a doddle. But magic is not finished with Mama Grant’s favourite son.

Because Terrence Skinner has a secret hidden in the bowels of the SCC. A technology that stretches back to Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, and forward to the future of artificial intelligence. A secret that is just as magical as it technological – and just as dangerous.

Praise for the Rivers of London novels:


‘An incredibly fast-moving magical joyride for grown-ups’ The Times

‘As brilliant and funny as ever’ Sun

‘For all the murder and mayhem, this is a darkly comic read with characters you can’t help but like’ Sunday Express

Reviews

The Hanging Tree is definitely one of the best in the Grant/Aaronovitch pantheon. There again, so have most of the previous books in the series and the odds are the next one probably will be too.
The Bookbag
This series is brilliant!
Teen Librarian
Aaronovitch deftly balances urban fantasy with the police procedural. As for Grant, he's a wonderful blend of laconic copper and, methodically researching how magic works, full-on nerd.
Crime Scene
Peter Grant is back, and now in handy-to-read-on-the-train novella format.
STARBURST
The Rivers of London series is an ever-evolving delight.
