The Hanging Tree by Ben Aaronovitch

Series: Peter Grant #6

Publication Date: April 5, 2016

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Synopsis (from Goodreads): Another gripping and hilarious adventure through the secret streets of London. A tour of what remains and an insight into what once was with a liberal sprinkling of folklore, myth and violent crime. Each of Ben Aaronovitch’s previous Peter Grant novels have been Sunday Times Top Ten HB bestsellers and The Hanging Tree looks set to repeat the feat.

The Hanging Tree was the Tyburn gallows which stood where Marble Arch stands today. Oxford Street was the last trip of the condemned. Some things don’t change. The place has a bloody and haunted legacy and now blood has returned to the empty Mayfair mansions of the world’s super-rich. And blood mixed with magic is a job for Peter Grant.

Peter Grant is back as are Nightingale et al. at the Folly and the various river gods, ghosts and spirits who attach themselves to England’s last wizard and the Met’s reluctant investigator of all things supernatural.

Why I want this book

  • The Peter Grant series is one of my favorite urban fantasy series.
  • This cover is wonderful. I love the covers for this series–the use of maps and rivers. Rivers, streams and brooks are very important in this series.
  • The London and England setting are very fun to read about and described so well.
  • I really enjoy the characters and am ready to find out what’s been happening to them!

  1. YES, I need this book! I’m probably not going to be able to wait until next April. It’s released in the UK this November, I think I might break down and just Book Depository it 🙂

  2. I don’t know why I have never read any of these books. I always see them and think – that sounds like something I would like. I may see if my library has them and give them a go…if I can get some ARCs off my plate.

    1. It’s a good series, Barb. And I think they keep getting better as they go along. If you have the time and your library has them go for it!
