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.

Ackroyd, Peter  
London Under: The Secret History Beneath the Streets
Ackroyd tunnels down through the geological layers of London, excavating the lore and mythology beneath the surface. There is a Bronze Age trackway below the Isle of Dogs, Anglo-Saxon graves rest under St. Paul's, and the monastery of Whitefriars lies beneath Fleet Street. To go under London is to penetrate history, and the book is filled with the stories unique to this underworld: the hydraulic device used to lower bodies into the catacombs in Kensal Green cemetery; the door in the plinth of the statue of Boadicea on Westminster Bridge that leads to a huge tunnel packed with cables for gas, water, and telephone; the sulphurous fumes on the Underground's Metropolitan Line, and more.
