Uncle Edgar's 2011 Bestsellers
(alphabetical by author)

 
 
Aaronovitch, Ben  
Peter Grant #1: Midnight Riot (UK title: Rivers of London)
PC Peter Grant is destined for the department that handles paperwork, until his ability to speak with a ghost brings him to the attention of DCI Thomas Nightingale, the last registered wizard in England, who investigates crimes involving the uncanny. A bizarre murder in Covent Garden puts them on the trail of a revenant spirit intent on making a bloody comeback.

Recommended by Elizabeth: Not your standard urban fantasy, this series is a beguiling mix of magic and police procedural set in modern-day London, with a refreshingly diverse cast of characters, plenty of action, and a decidedly British sense of humor. Plus, Peter is a geek, and pop culture references abound, from Tolkien and Monty Python to Pratchett and Call of Cthulhu.

One of them was killed with Cork's own gun, handed down to him from his father - as was the sixth body, which has been dead less than a week. Cork must dig into the darker parts of his family's past, and unravel the clues before more death comes to Tamarack County, Minnesota.
