Lies Sleeping (Rivers of London #7) by Ben Aaronovitch

I have a weird confession to make: I’ve loved every single one of Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers Of London novels but I’ll be darned if I could, today, explain the plot of even just one of the first six books to anybody who asked.

Wolfhound Century by Peter Higgins

Sometimes it’s nice to be squarely in the middle of the target audience.
