Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of Police Constable Peter Grant or the Folly--London's police department for supernatural cases--even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the flats of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But the daughter of Lady Ty, influential goddess of the Tyburn river, was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favor. Plunged into the alien world of the super-rich, where the basements are bigger than the houses, where the law is something bought and sold on the open market, a sensible young copper would keep his head down and his nose clean. But this is Peter Grant we're talking about. He's been given an unparalleled opportunity to alienate old friends and create new enemies at the point where the world of magic and that of privilege intersect. Assuming he survives the week...… (mer)

OH PETER!! we're starting to really hit that point of too many characters to juggle in a fair and considered fashion, but these dumb books are so charming, I don't even care. ( )

Aaronovitch, Ben. The Hanging Tree. Rivers of London No. 6. Daw, 2016.
Lady Ty, a hard-driving lawyer, who happens to be the goddess of the lost Tyburn River, is taking care of her patch of London when her daughter is accused of murder. Peter Grant and his Folly colleagues in charge of what old-school cops call “weird bollocks” had better be on the case or Lady Ty will not be happy. This is urban fantasy at its best. Aaronovitch feels free to add new, intriguing characters and change the valences on old ones whenever the situation demands. You might think he could not get away with it, but he does. The Rivers of London series continues to hold my interest. ( )

I read this a few weeks ago, and I had to think hard to even remember the plot. I don't take that as a great sign. I feel like these books are becoming weaker as they go along which is a shame because I still enjoy the characters a lot. ( )

Still very entertaining - in terms of tone and character development this series has hit its stride. But the plot was all over the place, and it could have used a stronger edit, both for SPAG and for continuity. ( )

I don’t know how I feel about this one, really. On the one hand, new Peter Grant book! More magical London! More world-building! More property damage!* But on the other hand, the plot felt loose, even compared to Foxglove Summer, which I had the same complaint about, and a lot of the world-building stuff felt like it came out of nowhere, even if a good chunk of it was awesome. (Can we keep Caroline? Please?) A bit more editing, a little more thought in stitching the elements together, and this would’ve been a better book. Still, Aaronovitch hasn’t lost me on the series yet and I’m looking forward to the next installment. Just hoping it comes faster this time?

5/10

* “Peter, no!” “Peter, yes!” ( )

Through the streets our wheels slowly move;

The toll of the death bell dismays us.

With nosegays and gloves we are deck’d,

So trim and so gay they array us.

The passage all crowded we see

With maidens that move us with pity;

Our air all, admiring agree

Such lads are not left in the city.

Oh! Then to the tree I must go;

The judge he has ordered the sentence.

And then comes a gownsman you know,

And tells a dull tale of repentance.

By the gullet we’re ty’d very tight;

We beg all spectators, pray for us.

Our peepers are hid from the light,

The tumbril shoves off, and we morrice.
Tyburn ballad as transcribed by Francis Place

And I thought I heard laughter echoing out of the city, but it might have just been the traffic.
Hyde Park Corner is what happens when a bunch of urban planners take one look at the grinding circle of gridlock that surrounds the Arc de Triumphe in Paris and think - that’s what we want for our town.
