Midnight Riot ★★★★☆

Midnight Riot  - Ben Aaronovitch, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

Peter Grant is my new favorite fictional cop. His smart-ass voice, bumbling policing, and attempted scientific approach to magic won me over as completely as the fully realized world he inhabits. I’ve already put the next book in the series on my TBR list.


I highly recommend this in the audiobook format, as Kobna Holdbrook-Smith reads this in a delicious voice that carried me along through the story so that I was hardly even conscious of time passing.
