    My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May.

    Readalot says: "Touch of the DWJs"
    "A narrator with a thousand believable accents."

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the world of magic and inner London policing were very realistically entwined, and how Harry Potter films still exist.



    What about Kobna Holdbrook-Smith’s performance did you like?

    The narrator is stunning, equally at home with English and Scottish accents from every social milieu and is one of very few male narrators I have come across who could do a believable female chav!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I listened to this book and its two sequels on a road trip through headphones and my family were amused by my frequent guffaws and snorts of delight.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series with gritty realism in its descriptions of inner city policing, while successfully introducing a believable fantasy worls, apparently on our very doorsteps! Highly recommended.
