Dive in at the beginning of the bestselling cops and wizards series from chart-topping author (and comics writer) Ben Aaronovitch, with this Box Set Edition of the first three graphic novels!

A stunning box set edition of the bestselling first three graphic novels in the Rivers of London sequence, starring Ben Aaronovitch’s laconic trainee wizard and budding detective, Peter Grant. All-new adventures for Peter and the Folly - that are essential parts of the smash-hit novel continuity! Peter Grant is part of a very special London police unit. Full-time cop and part-time wizard, he works on rather unusual crimes - those that involve magic and the general weirdness that permeates London’s dark underbelly.

In the first volume, Body Work, Police Constable Peter Grant and his boss, Thomas Nightingale, London’s only wizarding cops, tackle a case that begins with a perfectly innocent car on a homicidal killing spree - without a driver.

In the second volume, Night Witch, Peter and Nightingale are press-ganged into helping a Russian oligarch hunt his missing daughter, where they are caught up in a battle between Russian gunmen, a monstrous forest creature - and their nemesis:

In the third volume, Black Mould, something dark and slimy is dripping through the walls of suburban London. Not the usual stuff that smells funny and can be hell on the lungs, this mould is possessed by dark power and worse intentions.
Industry Reviews
"The book is enjoyable on two levels, for both the complete novice and for the knowledgeable fan. A fun read." - Nerdly "It's not often you'll find an entirely new comic book series that's promising well written story, some brilliantly complimentary artwork, and a sense of fun " - Graphic Policy

"Men in Black meets Knight Rider" - Latino Review

"Two things I love are magic, and a good mystery, so for me this is pretty much perfect. Essential reading..." - Big Comic Page

"An enjoyable ride." - Down The Tubes

"It's engaging, thrilling and has just enough of that real world work spliced with the magic/supernatural elements to make plausible and fantastical at the same time." - Reading With A Flight Ring

..". very entertaining" - Need To Consume

"Body Work is an accomplished mystery and a well-created urban fantasy. Readers who are already hooked on the books will enjoy this series; readers who haven't yet discovered Rivers of London will find this a good introduction." - Fangirl Nation

"Body Work is a delightful continuation of Aaronovitch's story, capturing the spirit and tone of the novels and bringing them to life with what is essentially a quick crash course in the world of Rivers Of London for the uninitiated." - Geeky Girls Love Sci Fi

"The magic--or "falcon," as police slang would have it--is pleasingly grounded here, creating a world of subtle intricacies rather than dazzling fireworks, and the supernatural is blended into the police procedural with satisfying realism. The characters are familiar but engaging enough, and the art does much to make each face distinctive and expressive as well as give the story its down-to-earth sturdiness." - Booklist The book is enjoyable on two levels, for both the complete novice and for the knowledgeable fan.
