COMES WITH A POSTCARD


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

Ben Aaronovitch

Ben Aaronovitch was born in London in 1964 and had the kind of dull routine childhood that drives a man either to drink or to science fiction.

He is a screenwriter, with early notable success on BBC’s legendary Doctor Who, for which he wrote some episodes now widely regarded as classics, and which even he is quite fond of.

After a decade of such work, he decided it was time to show the world what he could really do, and embarked on his first serious original novel. The result is Rivers of London, the debut adventure of Peter Grant.
