BEN AARONOVITCH The Hanging Tree
The sixth outing for PC Peter Grant sees him back in London and facing up to the terrifying legacy of London’s hangings. Another gripping and hilarious adventure through the secret streets of London. A tour of what remains, and an insight into what once was, with a liberal sprinkling of folklore, myth and violent crime. Peter Grant is back – as are Nightingale et al – at the Folly and the various river gods, ghosts and spirits who attach themselves to England’s last wizard and the Met’s reluctant investigator of all things supernatural. • Ben’s media profile is growing year on year. • Rivers of London was selected for World Book Night 2014 and Cityreads 2015. Ben Aaronovitch was born and raised in London and all his work has reflected his abiding fascination and love for what he modestly likes to refer to as the Capital of the World. He worked as a bookseller at Waterstone’s in Garrick Street in London, before writing tie-in novels and was the scriptwriter of the classic Doctor Who serial Remembrance of the Daleks. His PC Grant novels include Rivers of London, Moon Over Soho, Broken Homes and Foxglove Summer.
