Review: Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

Peter Grant is a probationary constable in the Metropolitan Police Service in London. During a murder investigation, Grant tries to take a witness statement from a ghost, which brings him to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard of England. Thus begins Peter Grant’s career as a Detective Constable and trainee wizard, making his job even more difficult as he deals with ghosts, vampires, and gods and goddesses. This is a fun, exciting, page turning, humour-filled hunt for a vampire ghost that’s on a killing spree in modern-day London. If that isn’t enough, the best part, at least to me, is that it takes the mickey out of all the recently popular fantasy novels, including Twilight and Harry Potter. Can’t wait for the second installment!
