This one is good, but it definitely is the middle book of a series, one which makes more sense if you've read the earlier titles and leaves you hanging fire with impatience wanting the next book to come out!

These mysteries about constable Peter Grant, who wants to be on the murder squad but ends up apprenticed to the last wizard in England (Detective Chief Inspector Nightingale of Scotland Yard) are an excellent blend of mystery, fantasy, humour, and horror. Peter's first person narration is immediately engaging, and the mysteries combine magic with the traditions of police procedural very well. The setting itself becomes a character, in more ways than one, as the gods of the Thames get involved. My very favourite of the series is book two, Moon Over Soho; this one lacks a bit of the punch of that, but is still an excellent read.
