Finally! A series I can recommend to my mother, fanatic reader of police procedurals and inveterate Anglophile. Generally our reading tastes are poles apart; she likes mysteries, the creepier and darker the better, and I like vampire romances and space opera. Why would we both like this? The main character, Peter Grant, is an apprentice wizard in the heretofore unknown paranormal branch of the Municipal Police. Whispers is the third installment in this series, and I highly recommend all of them to anyone who likes London, rivers, magic and fairies. I am reminded of the Dresden Files detective novels as well. Both Mom and I give it two thumbs up.
