Fox Glove Summer (Ben Aaronovitch) review

Foxglove Summer (Peter Grant, #5)

Ben Denis Aaronovitch 

20499240

Two girls go missing from a rural English town.  Peter Grant is sent to that town on a  routine mission  to check up on individuals  with magic powers,  living in the area.   Initially,  his inquiries go no where, finding no connection between these individuals and the missing girls.  But he does  not return to London. Instead, he decides to stay on and help the local police. He gradually gets drawn further and further into the investigation,  finding that there’s more to the case than meets the eye. I won’t go any further than that.  Since, this is a  mystery story and,  therefore,  is easily spoilt.

I have mentioned, in the previous reviews, that reading along with awards encourages you to read outside of your comfort zone. Apologising for  repetition, I have to say that,  I  would have never had  read this book if it hadn’t been for the Locus Recommended long list. I don’t know why, but, I never felt any incentive to read this book. I now have to admit that i was missing out.. This book is a fun read..

One thought on “Fox Glove Summer (Ben Aaronovitch) review

  1. Thanks for that kick in the ass to read along with awards. I’m more of a lone wolf reader who picks up something that’s been howling out in the wilds of my brain for a while instead of someone who finds a pack to read along with. I think I’ll aim at retraining that instinct because, you’re right, reading along with awards means you’re involved in a collective endeavor to discover truth and experience with others who are exploring this literary world just as you are.
