Rivers of London Volume 5: Cry Fox

CSI meets Harry Potter in this fantastic new graphic novel from Ben Aaronovitch, writer of the bestselling Rivers of London supernatural police procedural crime novel series!

Vengeful Russian mobsters are looking to hire members of London's own more-then-natural underworld to bring bloody retribution down on the witch Varvara. However, the ex-Soviet sorcerer is under the protective wing of London's own wizarding cop, Peter Grant (now a proper detective and everything), and to get the attention of Grant and his colleagues, the the daughter of a prominent Russian oligarch is kidnapped by parties unknown but possibly fox-like. What makes it worse is that Peter is going to have to leave his beloved London and *gasp* go out into the countryside! And when there's trees and fields and wildlife involved, things never end well...

    Every addition to The Rivers of London is welcome. I wish this installment could have had more of Peter Grant and his wry wit, though. I would add one thing to "The Fox of Folklore, Myth, & Culture", ...

  • Terra

    The more I read these Peter Grant comics, the more I like them. This one involved Abigail playing innocent while wearing a T-shirt that said “Monday: The Struggle Is Real,” so I’d say that’s a...

  • Tanwen Cooper

    An interesting story. Features the side characters of the RoL series rather than Peter and Nightingale, but that's really what I want from these graphic novels. Good fun, but it didn't really grow my ...
