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.
