Rivers of London
I’ve just been reading a book by Ben Aaronvitch, titled Rivers of London. I’d really recommend this as a fun read to all London Guides and anyone interested in London History – first of three books so far, and introduces a new hero in the form of Peter Grant, a probationary police constable who is assigned to the specialist unit of the Metropolitian Police which deals in magical crimes. Absolute hoot – and nearly all the lost and hidden Rivers of London make an appearance in it. Clearly Ben is a lover of history – he manages to mix some really wonderful real history with a very imaginative set of mythological delights and horrors … I’ve already acquired the second book in the series and looking forward to reading it.
