FALSE VALUE

BEN AARONOVITCH    Book Number: 89615    Product format: Paperback

From the absorbing and enthralling Rivers of London series. Peter Grant was once the Met Police's first trainee wizard. Yes, they exist, in 50 years. Now, he's facing fatherhood and a new job with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm. Leaving his old police life behind, he takes a job with Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner's new London start up - the Serious Cybernetics Corporation. Drawn into the orbit of Old Street's famous 'silicon roundabout', Peter thinks it should be a doddle compared to his last job, but he doesn't know that a secret is hiding in the building that stretches back to Lovelace and Babbage, and forward to the future of artificial intelligence. It is a secret that is just as magical as it technological, and twice as dangerous. Full of mystery, magic and fantastic characters, the spirit-goddess of Beverley Brook, heavily pregnant with twins, is a sheer delight and there is a screamingly funny Basil Brush joke and casual references to steampunk in this witty novel that gives Terry Pratchett a run for his money. 404pp, paperback.
