Ben Aaronovitch signing The Hanging Tree
BEN AARONOVITCH will be signing THE HANGING TREE at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday 4th November from 6 – 7pm.
Another gripping and hilarious adventure through the secret streets of London – the sixth of the best-selling series – brings us a tour of what remains, and an insight into what once was, with a liberal sprinkling of folklore, myth and violent crime.
The Hanging Tree was the Tyburn gallows that stood where Marble Arch stands today. Oxford Street was the last trip of the condemned. Some things don’t change. The place has a bloody and haunted legacy and now blood has returned to the empty Mayfair mansions of the world’s super-rich. And blood mixed with magic is a job for Peter Grant.
Peter Grant is back as are Nightingale et al at the Folly and the various river gods, ghosts and spirits who attach themselves to England’s last wizard and the Met’s reluctant investigator of all things supernatural.
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.
