Publisher's Summary

A stunning PC Peter Grant novella continues this best-selling series with commuting ghosts, a kidnapping, and a superb new London mystery!
PC Peter Grant is heading west.
The Furthest Station is Ben Aaronovitch's first PC Grant novella...and there's something going bump on the Metropolitan line. And when commuters start reporting encounters with ghosts up and down the track - encounters which they forget entirely within minutes - Peter Grant gets a call to investigate. And the very first interview leads to a ghost-hunting expedition....
The first ever Peter Grant novella, this is a fantastic London-based mystery.

Critic Reviews

" 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)
"This series is brilliant!" ( Teen Librarian)

Delightful writing and narration

This author and narrator team make the Peter Grant series my favorite audio book series. The writing is imaginative - with twisty plots and characters with depth and layers.

The narration is fabulous, with interesting change-ups in pacing, fantastic and recognizable voices.

Ben Aaronovitch and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith do outstanding work. I always look forward to the next book and find listening to this series delightful.

Don't miss The Furthest Station

What do I love about this audiobook series? The vivid London landscape, the digressions about architecture, the musicality, the diverse backgrounds of all the characters (not one character is a cardboard stand in -- even if we're not told their whole story), the details of a police procedural, Peter's efforts to apply science to magic, the dashing Nightingale, the rich context of history, class, and region... and I could go on. There could not be a better narrator for this series than Kobna Holdbrook-Smith. If you haven't read the series, start at the beginning and don't skip this installment-- even if it's a novella, it's a wonderful listen. I can't wait for the next full length novel. Thank you, Mr. Aaronovich, now back to work!

Ok but

The short stories / novellas are not a patch on the books. It is all rather lightweight and thin

Much better but

Left wondering why this story wasn't incorporated into a full length novel. Good story more akin to the early books, with touches of Neverwhere. But some unresolved plot holes and the asides to American listeners /readers niggled. Teen character may please younger audience but overall not sure this was worth a credit.

Absolutely amazing

There was literally not a moment that I was not enthralled, the story had a perfect place, revisited existing characters without excessive repetition of their history as other series often do. The slice of life along with story progression of Abigail was incredibly satisfying. Kobna's superb performing capabilities continue to lend this series all of the nuances it deserves.

A decent read but missing the depth of the novels

It is very hard to maintain freshness and excellence in a series such are this, and this novella was missing something... "spring", a central context (rivers, jazz, architecture).

I have been captured by the characters, and the gaps in Nightingale's back story, but I want a return to the energy of the first few books in the series.
