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.

Goblin Secrets
Signed on the title page, with 'National Book Award Winner' sticker on the front of the jacket. Ages 8 and up. In the town of Zombay, a witch named Graba takes in stray children. Rownie is the youngest boy in her household; his only real relative is his older brother Rowan, who is an actor. But in Zombay, humans are forbidden to wear masks, perform plays, or pretend to be other than what they are. Rowan disappeared when the Mayor's Guard raided an illegal play. Desperate to find him, Rownie joins up with a troupe of goblins who skirt the law to put on plays. But their plays are not only for entertainment, and the masks they use are for more than make-believe. The goblins welcome Rownie; they also want to find Rowan, who might be the only person who can stop the mighty River from flooding the town.

The little girl appeared in Central Park: red-haired, blue-eyed, smiling, perfect - except for the blood on her shoulder. It fell from the sky, she said, while she was looking for her uncle, who turned into a tree. 'Poor child,' people thought. And then they found the body in the tree. Mallory, newly returned to the Special Crimes Unit, recognizes the girl as a kindred spirit. And this one will lead her to a story of extraordinary crimes: murders stretching back fifteen years, blackmail and complicity, and a particular cruelty that only someone with Mallory's history could fully recognize. In the next few weeks, she will deal with them all . . . in her own way.
