    Okay I will apologise in that this is a little bit late but I think the cold I have just shifted had something to say about that.Okay so what to say about the next in the Rivers of London graphic novel series? Well for starters as the series of books increases there is finally an nice and simply reading sequence which shows where the various novels and graphics fit in with each other and to be honest as simply as it appears its a great help espec...

    Another decent (but not outstanding) Rivers of London collection that should please (but not thrill) fans of the novels. This collection consists of four self-contained short stories linked together by a cute framing device.
  • Margaret
    The most recent offering in the Rivers of London graphic novels series.This one is four separate stories linked by the device of Peter Grant doing his final interview to ascertain whether he is suitable to be promoted to Detective Constable. The interviewer, Detective Inspector Chopra, has a little bit of trouble with the magical aspects of Peter's job:Chopra: I thought they were...Peter: Exaggerating?Chopra: Taking the piss.We get to learn some ...

    Rivers of London: Detective Stories is the latest combined volume of the spin-off comics from Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London books. This one contains four short, self-contained casefics, recounted by Peter as part of the assessment process for his promotion to Detective Constable. The stories themselves are fairly slight, but they're entertaining enough and typically packed with geeky in-jokes (I was particularly delighted by the law firm "Bo...

    3.5 stars. Unlike the previous graphic novels, this one contained four standalone stories rather than one case. This made it a little less satisfying, although it did contain some cases from the early days in Peter's career which was interesting.I still enjoyed it, but mostly because I massively fangirled when Peter quoted Lord Vetinari (from Terry Pratchett's Discworld) and my two favourite fictional worlds collided.

    Part of what I love about these books is the police procedural stuff, so obviously I really enjoyed these little case reviews. Plus bonus Leslie feels.

    This volume of the 'Rivers of London' graphic novel series takes a slightly different format to the previous ones. Rather than being a single story, it's a set of short stories, with the overarching narrative of Peter taking his detective exam and these being episodes from his history being told to his examiner (something which works well for comics - as each story is an issue long). This format does let us move around in time, and some of the st...

    This is my favorite of the collected comics so far! Peter narrates four of his cases to a reviewer who investigates whether he is good as s detective. We get flashbacks to the partnership with Lesley as well as other cases, and they all fit the length well. The art is still far from pretty, but the comic narrative, and use of footnotes, works well. The one-page shorts coming between stories were also funny.
