Description

The first book in the Shadow Police series from Dr Who writer Paul Cornell "An irresistible blend of guns, gangsters, cops and monsters" Ben Aaronovitch The dark is rising... Detective Inspector James Quill is about to complete the drugs bust of his career. Then his prize suspect Rob Toshack is murdered in custody. Furious, Quill pursues the investigation, co-opting intelligence analyst Lisa Ross and undercover cops Costain and Sefton. But nothing about Toshack's murder is normal. Toshack had struck a bargain with a vindictive entity, whose occult powers kept Toshack one step ahead of the law - until his luck ran out. Now, the team must find a "suspect" who can bend space and time and alter memory itself. And they will kill again. As the group starts to see London's sinister magic for themselves, they have two choices: panic or use their new abilities. Then they must hunt a terrifying supernatural force the only way they know how: using police methods, equipment and tactics. But they must all learn the rules of this new game - and quickly. More than their lives will depend on it. PRAISE FOR THE SERIES "The Shadow Police series is the quintessential British contemporary fantasy, full of grit and magic and wonderful things. Paul Cornell is a national treasure" Adam Christopher "Start this book early in the day people, because you ain't going to get no sleep until it's done" Ben Aaronovitch on London Falling "I think it is absolutely magnificent. I loved it ... I'm not sure I've been that gripped by a novel in ... well, decades" Russell T. Davies on London Falling "A much grittier vision of a gothic, fantasy London, well balanced between its depiction of the city's criminal underworld and a horrifying fantasy reality that for most of the novel lurks just at the edges of sight." Guardian "Realistic banter, original twists" Daily Telegraph "Pacy, smart and revels in London mythology. ... crikey it's good fun" Scotland on Sunday
