Ben Aaronovitch grew up as part of a famously engaged and lively North London family. He has written for many TV series including Doctor Who and been a bookseller. His Peter Grant novels have been hugely successful and he now writes full time. He still lives in London, the city he likes to refer to as 'the capital of the world'.
Ben Aaronovitch is a master of metropolitan magical mayhem and the
action is delightful. This is a tight thriller that is compelling
and buckets of fun. * STARBURST *
Once you start, you'll find a London that's just dying to be explored. * DEN OF GEEK *
Aaronovitch has outdone himself this time - it's the best book of the series thus far, and that's no mean feat. * IRRESPONSIBLE READER *
The Hanging Tree is definitely one of the best in the Grant/Aaronovitch pantheon. There again, so have most of the previous books in the series and the odds are the next one probably will be too. -- The Bookbag
Aaronovitch deftly balances urban fantasy with the police procedural. As for Grant, he's a wonderful blend of laconic copper and, methodically researching how magic works, full-on nerd. -- Crime Scene
Aaronovitch is writing proper police procedural novels, which are at the same time proper novels about the myths and legends of London. His characters are ones you'll want to come back to, his plots are convincingly contemporary and his humour is well-judged. Altogether, this is one of the most satisfying series currently available. * MORNING STAR *
It feels like Aaronovitch is scaling up to something big and series ending. But not too soon, please, because getting there is so delightful. * LOCUS MAGAZINE *
This series is brilliant! -- Teen Librarian
