‘October Man’ by Ben Aaronovitch

‘Nice, But Not London’

Score: 3/5

A Rivers Of London novella, but not set in London and not with any of the previous characters. Tricky to pull off.

And it sortof worked. But only sortof. I didn’t really care that much about any of the characters and they seemed to lack the depth of the existing characters. That’s probably to be expected, given how many books the other characters have been in, but it’s still a shame. I don’t know that I’d have warmed to these characters to the same degree if they’d had the same number of books, and really all I want is a Rivers Of London book that moves the Rivers Of London story forward.
