Peter Grant is a Probationary Constable a term I wasn t familiar with until I began reading At the beginning the London of Peter Grant is a normal one The genre is not in Fantasy waters from the beginning But then Grant witnesses a ghost at a crime sceneThe author reminds me of Ian Rankin when there is police procedure of the mudane type and Jim Butcher when magic is involved I liked how imperfect the hero Peter Grant is There is however always a trade off I found the writing style slightly prominent which is not good for me as a readerGrant is surrounded by a world that is alive because the characters are alive So the author did his job well But my memory is uite haphazard so I still didn t remember all the people in the book It is hard to pinpoint why the book is relevantly brilliant I think that the slow pacing of the book helps establish its world for the necessary seuels What I m saying is that the book is must read and is a wonderful springboard for a series
