False Value

False Value

The massively anticipated brand new Sunday Times bestselling RIVERS OF LONDON novel.



Peter Grant is facing fatherhood, and an uncertain future, with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm.

Leaving his old police life behind, he takes a job with Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner’s new London start up: the Serious Cybernetics Corporation.

Drawn into the orbit of Old Street’s famous ‘silicon roundabout’, Peter must learn how to blend in with people who are both civilians and geekier than he is. Compared to his last job, Peter thinks it should be a doddle.

But magic is not finished with the Met’s first trainee wizard in fifty years…

Because a secret is hiding somewhere in the building. A technology that stretches back to Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, and forward to the future of artificial intelligence. A secret that is just as magical as it technological – and twice as dangerous.

Reviews

This series is brilliant!
Teen Librarian
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
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
Peter Grant is back, and now in handy-to-read-on-the-train novella format.
STARBURST
The Rivers of London series is an ever-evolving delight.
CRIME REVIEW
I've been a fan of the series for years, so I went in expecting quite a lot from False Value - and it absolutely stepped up and delivered
