Every Peter Grant novel published has been a Sunday Times Top 10 bestseller bEN AARONOvITCH The Hanging Tree
The sixth outing for PC Peter Grant in this bestselling series sees him back in london and facing up to the terrifying legacy of london's hangings.
The Hanging Tree was the Tyburn gallows which stood where Marble Arch stands today. Oxford Street was the last trip of the condemned. Somethings don’t change. The place has a bloody and haunted legacy and now blood has returned to the empty Mayfair mansions of the world’s super-rich. And blood mixed with magic is a job for Peter Grant.
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.
• Foxglove Summer, the fifth Peter Grant novel, sold 75,000 copies.
