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.
