Small in that it has only two active members, and unique because the crimes it investigates are somewhat unusual in nature. Some might say paranormal. Others might call them supernatural. Either way, they usually involve magic. The SAU’s newest (and second) member, PC Peter Grant, is not just a trainee wizard, but also an ambitious member of the Met, and he’s currently being interviewed as part of the rigorous screening he must undergo to become a police detective. Self-contained magical crimes, as recounted by Detective Peter Grant to his superiors, as he takes the Detective exam. If you've ever wanted to try the mysterious world of Rivers of London, this is the perfect opportunity to get on board! An all-new series of Rivers of London short stories by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel. Set between The Hanging Tree and Black Mould.

The kidnapping of two young girls is not what it seems. On the surface it looked like an attempt to ransom the daughter of the imprisoned wife of a Russian oligarch – but then why was Abigail, apprentice wizard to Peter Grant, also taken? And why, after also kidnapping his vixen and cub, were the moneyed miscreants using Dan Russell – one of London’s more unusual talking foxes – as bait? Abigail, apparently poor prey material, has now been joined in captivity by another kidnapped associate of The Folly – Detective Sergeant Guleed, who is apparently considered much greater sport. Now Peter and his boss are going to have to leave the confines of London to take their chances in the green and unpleasant countryside, to track the kidnappers down… An all-new Rivers of London story written by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel, taking place after the events of the novel ‘The Hanging Tree’ and comic series ‘Detective Stories’. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; min-height: 14.0px}

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,1, University of Bonn (Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), language: English, abstract: This paper foremost deals with the question in which ways the magic detective Peter Grant is differentiated from the non-magic detective, that is to say Sherlock Holmes, and in which ways the world of the protagonist is modified by the supernatural. Representatives for the two different approaches will be "A Scandal in Bohemia" (first published in 1891) as well as "A Study in Scarlet" (first published in 1887) by Arthur Conan Doyle and Ben Aaronovitch's "Rivers of London". Even though there are many iconic detectives that could have served the purpose, Sherlock Holmes was chosen as he is something like a patron saint of detective fiction. Priestman states on that matter that “Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes is the supreme 'character' of nineteenth-century detective fiction” (Detective Fiction 74). “A Scandal in Bohemia” was chosen here as it features a female culprit and it will be interesting to set the female role as presented in the short story against the one in the more recent novel by Aaronovitch. However, when referring to Sherlock Holmes, "A Study in Scarlet" will also be accounted for as this is the story where Watson first meets the legendary sleuth and thus the reader is described a lot of mannerisms of his through the eyes of the narrator. Peter Grant's story was selected as there is barely another novel at the time which features the supernatural next to the criminal in such a striking pattern. This assumption was made due to the fact that Peter Grant is a wizard and a police constable at the same time. Therefore it will be interesting to explore how this fact influences him and the world he lives in and also the distinction between the Victorian and the postmodern approach.
