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.

Peter Grant #4: Broken Homes
Police constable and apprentice magician Peter Grant has three main objectives for the new year: pass the detective exam; work out what his relationship with Lesley is supposed to be; and get through the year without destroying a major London landmark. A town planner has gone under a tube train; a grimoire has been stolen; and the prime suspect in a mutilation killing in Crawley may be an associate of the Faceless Man, Peter's least favorite ethically challenge magician. Now something odd is going on in Elephant and Castle, on a housing estate designed by a nutter, built by charlatans, and inhabited by the truly desperate. And if it's connected to the Crawley case, Peter might have some jurisdictional problems due to his prickly history with the local river spirits.
