The kidnapping of two young girls is not what it seems. On the surface it looked like an attempt to ransom the daughter of the imprisoned wife of a Russian oligarch – but then why was Abigail, apprentice wizard to Peter Grant, also taken? And why, after also kidnapping his vixen and cub, were the moneyed miscreants using Dan Russell – one of London’s more unusual talking foxes – as bait? Abigail, apparently poor prey material, has now been joined in captivity by another kidnapped associate of The Folly – Detective Sergeant Guleed, who is apparently considered much greater sport. Now Peter and his boss are going to have to leave the confines of London to take their chances in the green and unpleasant countryside, to track the kidnappers down… An all-new Rivers of London story written by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel, taking place after the events of the novel ‘The Hanging Tree’ and comic series ‘Detective Stories’. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; min-height: 14.0px}

He may now be a Detective Constable, but Peter Grant still has a long way to go before he can become London’s second fully-qualified wizard policeman (the first being his boss, Inspector Thomas Nightingale). Still, no peace for the wicked. Grant and Nightingale remain vigilant for signs of their nemesis, the Faceless Man, and his known associate, Lesley May – one time cop and Peter’s ex-partner before a horrific disfigurement drove her to the wrong side of the criminal track when she sought to repair the damage. In the meantime, the boys in black – neither would be seen dead in a blue suit while on duty – are looking to keep safe the Russian witch, Varvara, who has a rather large price on her head after helping the police with their enquiries… p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; min-height: 14.0px} An all-new Rivers of London story written by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel, taking place after the events of the novel ‘The Hanging Tree’ and comic series ‘Detective Stories’.

Through the nefarious actions of vulpine fay Reynard (to be considered a cunning bastard), aided by talking fox Danny Russell (forced into service after his mate and cub were kidnapped, so to be considered generally a pretty good canid acting under duress), Anna (daughter of imprisoned Russian oligarch), Abigail (trainee wizard – nay apprentice – to The Folly) and Detective Sergeant Guleed (Muslim ninja) have been kidnapped. While the principal reason would seem to be ransom by the blackmail of Anna’s parents, Abigail and Guleed are wanted for an entirely different purpose – they are about to find out what it feels like to be at the sharp end of a fox hunt… p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; min-height: 14.0px}

My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (and as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May. Then one night, in pursuance of a murder inquiry, I tried to take a witness statement from someone who was dead but disturbingly voluable, and that brought me to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England. Now I'm a Detective Constable and a trainee wizard, the first apprentice in fifty years, and my world has become somewhat more complicated: nests of vampires in Purley, negotiating a truce between the warring god and goddess of the Thames, and digging up graves in Covent Garden ... and there's something festering at the heart of the city I love, a malicious vengeful spirit that takes ordinary Londoners and twists them into grotesque mannequins to act out its drama of violence and despair.The spirit of riot and rebellion has awakened in the city, and it's falling to me to bring order out of chaos - or die trying.

A Short History of Nearly Everything

Author: Bill Bryson

Publisher: Anchor Canada

ISBN: 0385674503

Category: Science

Page: 560

View: 3920

One of the world’s most beloved and bestselling writers takes his ultimate journey -- into the most intriguing and intractable questions that science seeks to answer. In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail -- well, most of it. In In A Sunburned Country, he confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand -- and, if possible, answer -- the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds. A Short History of Nearly Everything is the record of this quest, and it is a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it. Science has never been more involving or entertaining. From the Hardcover edition.
