Description

An evening with Ben Aaronovitch, Author, ex Bookseller and TV Writer is coming to Heswall to help celebrate IBW 2019.

A brand-new stand-alone novella in the bestselling Rivers of London series.
If you thought magic only needed to be policed in the UK think again!

Trier is famous for wine, Romans and for being Germany's oldest city. So when a man is found dead with, his body impossibly covered in a fungal rot only found on grapes, the local authorities know they are out of their depth.

Fortunately this is Germany, where there are procedures for everything.

Enter Investigator Tobias Winter, whose aim is to get in, deal with the problem, and get out with minimum fuss, personal danger and paperwork. With the help of frighteningly enthusiastic local cop, Vanessa Sommer, he's quick to link the first victim to a ‘drinking-and-improvement society’, created by a group of entirely ordinary middle-aged men - who may have somehow accidentally reawakened a bloody conflict from a previous century.

The rot is still spreading, literally, and the list of victims and suspects ever increasing. Solving the case may mean unearthing the city's secret magical history. So long as that history doesn't kill them first.


Ben Aaronovitch grew up as part of a famously engaged and lively North London family. He has written for many TV series including Doctor Who and been a bookseller. His Peter Grant novels have been hugely successful and he now writes full time. He still lives in London, the city he likes to refer to as 'the capital of the world'.
