Body Work – Starting with a car on a killing spree, with no driver, Peter investigates a Bosnian refugee and a seemingly-harmless wooden bench with the darkest of paths... [11] With that said, I must admit I'm mostly lukewarm toward this book in particular, and I've been mulling over it for a few months now, trying to figure out why that is. The writing isn't that different from previous books.

Whether the young police woman chooses to wear or not a hijab, it is her own decision and not something to be ruled by the government. The more I love a book, the harder it becomes to review, because I don't want to move out of my state of enjoyment to one of analysis. That said, this was quite possibly my favorite installment of Peter Grant's story yet. The characterization is interesting, there are developments in Peter's personal life, and the overall arc of the series takes a satisfying and solid step forward. On less happy side - and now I have to wait for the next one again for another whole year (and I'm being optimistic here). If I try very hard to find something to complain about in this episode, it is the presence of some not very subtle product placements, but most of it is done in a humorous tone, so I will give Peter Grant the benefit of the doubt (I blame another author for souring me on the practice - Craig Johnson. Now I see paid advertisements everywhere) This novella takes place in Germany. In Trier, the oldest city in Germany, to be precise. The events are told by Tobias Winter, a German cop and wizard. By the way, the reason a German cop was taught magic was that Nightingale took an apprentice (which apparently puts him in breach of an arrangement between England and Germany).Aaronovitch, Ben (11 July 2017). The Hanging Tree. London, England. ISBN 9780575132573. OCLC 943233035. {{ cite book}}: CS1 maint: location missing publisher ( link) I felt at home in the Folly once more. Also I got more of Mr. Witcher and it was great to watch him doing his magic in the battle field. Thought, I think, Molly still has to wait for her star-hour. I would eagerly wait for that! :) I called Nightingale, who said he was fifteen minutes away and asked him to authorise a little look.

This novel, the ninth in the series, was released on 7 April 2022. [9] Peter Grant, now an expecting father, is tasked to investigate a suspicious magical death in London's silver vaults and uncover a centuries' old mystery. Tobi als deutscher Zauberlehrling, wird zur Aufklärung eines merkwürdig anmutenden Mordes in den Trierer Weinbergen gerufen. Auch die Rahmenbedingungen erinnern sehr an die Peter Grant-Bücher. Es gibt die deutsche Entsprechung zum Folly, magische Ereignisse und Wesen und auch die obligatorischen Flussgötter fehlen nicht. Auch das eigenartige Halbwissen der regulären Polizeibeamten über Magie findet sich hier. The world of magical policing is not limited to London. In The October Man, Ben Aaronovitch extends this magical universe to Germany while also providing his reading audience with further information on the international and historical scope of this world. Tobias Winter is the young officer in training who responds to an unusual death in Germany’s wine country, in Trier, an old, even ancient city, known to the Romans. And, in keeping with its setting, the victim has died due to a rot peculiar to grapes. The Hanging Tree by Ben Aaronovitch: 9780756409678 | Books". But finally, we stop chasing after ghosts and faceless mysteries and come face to face with the man behind the mask. And there really is a face behind that mask. This reveal was indeed a surprise, but whether or not it does anything for the series' continuous arc will depend on how it plays out in later books.
