So when a man is found dead with, his body impossibly covered in a fungal rot, 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 the minimum of fuss, personal danger and paperwork.

This series is brilliant! -- Teen Librarian Aaronovitch deftly balances urban fantasy with the police procedural. As for Grant, he's a wonderful blend of laconic copper and, methodically researching how magic works, full-on nerd. -- Crime Scene The Hanging Tree is definitely one of the best in the Grant/Aaronovitch pantheon. There again, so have most of the previous books in the series and the odds are the next one probably will be too. -- The Bookbag The Rivers of London series is an ever-evolving delight. * CRIME REVIEW * Aaronovitch is well on his way to becoming this country's standout voice of urban fantasy * The Sun * The October Man is a must for any fan of the series. * STARBURST MAGAZINE * Peter Grant is back, and now in handy-to-read-on-the-train novella format. * STARBURST *
