Everyday Modern England  --  with magic? Suppose you were a probationary constable hoping to become something interesting...like a murder detective for example.  Too bad it looks like you're headed to the Case Progression Unit (which means: Paperwork Central).  Fortunately you've got a fierce sense of humor.  And you'll need that humor 'cause the girl you're really hot for is probationary, too- and actually headed to the murder detective squad.  Then the two of you wind up minding a murder scene late one bitter night, and while she runs for hot coffee you stumble across a significant witness to the crime.  A knowledgeable eyewitness.  Who happens to be a ghost.
 
Great.  Who's going to believe you?
 
Or worse: what if someone does believe you?
 
Attitude, wit and a whole new take on the supernatural- this the first in a new series by Ben Aaronovitch, and the second is already on the way: Moon Over Soho (coming soon to a Library near you!)  This narrator has got real character.
 
Nancy Pearl says it's "something special".
 
"Fresh, original, and a wonderful read.  I loved it."  writes Charlaine Harris.
 
And Diana Gabaldon thinks it's "...a hilarious, keenly imagined caper."
 
Names to conjure with!
