A Peter Grant bonus short story

London PC Peter Grant gets called to the British Museum, which has a serious problem in one of its many basements. They think it's a poltergeist; something, at least, is moving things around in ways that can't be accounted for by the actions of staff and users. Grant thinks this is unlikely, because of how modern the building is, but given the ancient, rare, historical, and otherwise valuable items in the collection, can't rule it out.

And so he goes hunting through the basements. But is he hunting a ghost, a poltergeist, something else?

And has he brought the right equipment?

This is a nice little short story, an Audible exclusive, that adds to the world-building and character development of the series. It's an additional little treat if you've been reading the series, and a nice introduction to Peter Grant if you haven't been.

This story was free on Audible when I downloaded it.

I LIKE TO LEARN FROM THE MISTAKES OF FICTIONAL

CHARACTERS
A lot of paranormal with a mix of Steampunk. Nothing I am too excited about and I will forget all of it by next week, but it is free and is only a half hour of my life. Certainly worth a go.

LIBRAIRIANSHIP IS NOT FOR THE FAINTHEARTED
The SODDEN narrator does a fine job.

Short vignette for the fans

A fun story that's really more of a short scene. Nice to see Postmartin have a bit of fun. Honestly, don't bother with this unless you already know the series. No concessions are made for noobs; it's just dropped there for you to find. Or, then again, maybe do just spend a few minutes listening to this and if you are intrigued, go back and get the books.

Kobna Holdbrook-Smith is brilliant as ever. It makes such a difference to the quality of the audiobook when the author and reader work together. Kobna is so comfortable as Peter Grant and Ben Aaronovitch's world that it's always a pleasure to listen to him.

More please!

A great short story from the Rivers of London series, it would be wonderful if all the graphic novels were issued as short stories too!
