Peter Grant, a rookie copper with the Met Police, seems to be destined for the Crime Protection Unit and a life of filling in other people's paperwork when he encounters a ghost while guaarding a crime scene and everything changes. Peter becomes the second person in a two man unit headed up by the Met's only wizzard and is soon an apprentice wizzard, encountering vampires, a very strange housekeeper, a spirit of unrest in London and some of the water spirits of London - he gets the idea that no matter how tempting it would bee it would be very unwise to go swimming with the nubile Beverly Brook, one of Mother Thames' younger daughters. Though this book isn't faultless, I felt it seemed to pall a little towards the end, I loved it. it's written with a very light touch, I thoroughly enjoyed the way he wove London into the story and didn't think there was too much detail at all, and it's very funny in places too. Off to buy the next in the series...
