Ben Aaronovitch signing Foxglove Summer
BEN AARONOVITCH will be signing FOXGLOVE SUMMER at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Monday 10th November from 1 – 2pm!
In the fifth of his bestselling series, Ben Aaronovitch takes Peter Grant out of whatever comfort zone he might have found and takes him out of London - to a small village in Herefordshire where the local police are reluctant to admit that there might be a supernatural element to the disappearance of some local children. But while you can take the London copper out of London you can't take the London out of the copper.
Travelling west with Beverley Brook, Peter soon finds himself caught up in a deep mystery and having to tackle local cops and local gods. And what's more all the shops are closed by 4pm...
Full of warmth, sly humour and a rich cornucopia of things you never knew about London, Aaronovitch's series has swiftly added Grant's magical London to Rebus' Edinburgh and Morse's Oxford as a destination of choice for those who love their crime with something a little extra. The books have now been optioned to become a TV series. Born and raised in London, Ben Aaronovitch now lives in Kentish Town. He is a former bookseller and script writer, most famously for Doctor Who when he was the first person to write a scene of a Dalek going up a flight of stairs in a TV story in ‘Remembrance of the Daleks’. He now writes full-time.
