Probationary Constable Peter Grant dreams of being a detective in London's Metropolitan Police. Too bad his superior plans to assign him to the Case Progression Unit, where the biggest threat he'll face is a paper cut. But Peter's prospects change in the aftermath of a puzzling murder, when he gains exclusive information from an eyewitness who happens to be a ghost. Peter's ability to speak with the lingering dead brings him to the attention of Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, who investigates crimes involving magic and other manifestations of the uncanny. Now, as a wave of brutal and bizarre murders engulfs the city, Peter is plunged into a world where gods and goddesses mingle with mortals and a long-dead evil is making a comeback on a rising tide of magic.

Young policeman Peter Grant's biggest worry used to be where he'd be assigned once he made constable. But one night, he sees a ghost and everything changes. Suddenly he's part of a special division handling supernatural crimes, learning how to cast spells and getting introduced to a world of gods and monsters. His first cases - tracking a malicious spirit that forces people to commit gruesome crimes, and trying to make peace between two rival factions of river gods. The characters are likeable, the plot is fast-moving and the setting is interesting, but some pacing troubles keep this from being a four or five. At some points the mystery just stalls out, and all the tension just disappears. Still, a great opening - I'll certainly look into the other books in the series.

The Rivers of London series is great fun and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith's performance is consistently excellent throughout all the audiobook versions.
