Publisher's Summary

Body and soul. The song. That's what London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body - a sure sign that something about the man's death was not at all natural but instead supernatural.

Body and soul - they're also what Peter will risk as he investigates a pattern of similar deaths in and around Soho. With the help of his superior officer, Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, the last registered wizard in England, and the assistance of beautiful jazz aficionado Simone Fitzwilliam, Peter will uncover a deadly magical menace - one that leads right to his own doorstep and to the squandered promise of a young jazz musician: a talented trumpet player named Richard "Lord" Grant - otherwise known as Peter's dear old dad.

    "Just as good as #1"

    I liked this just as much, and maybe a little more than the first book. I liked finding out how Leslie was doing during her recovery. The humor is great and refreshing. The story was good.

    "More of a good thing"

    Well, I'm getting better at understanding English, as opposed to American. But...there are a number of "pop" references that I had to think about or check on. Maybe I'm getting too old, but it was worth it.

    The narrator's ability to use different voices remains a virtual wonder, particularly as more characters are introduced into the arc of the story.

    After reading this, 2nd in the series, I can't emphasize enough the advise that you read the series, beginning with the first book.

    "Sophomore jinx strikes again...still worth it"

    I really enjoyed Midnight Riot. The characters continue in Moon Over Soho but they're not quite as interesting. This happens all the time in all kinds of entertainment. The sequel never to equal the original. This may happens more often with complicated characters and that's what we have in the "Peter Grant" stories. Peter is still a non-conformist. He is still struggling with his place in society. But he has figured out a bunch of stuff too. Though I am no prude, I did find the sexual scenes a little too much. I think it is great premise and the narrator is excellent but it is hard to follow up such a good premiere book, movie, television show, album, you name it.

    "So glad I found this!"

    Great job Ben Aaronovitch!! Super fun, fantastical series! I am enjoying every minute! From the great narration (thank you Kobna Holdbrook-Smith!) To the fun story line- a wonderful mash-up of fantasy, mystery and police procedural, all set in London ( which is the icing on my cake)!!!! I've got a lot to catch up on!! Keep them coming!

    "Decent Follow-up"

    I continued to enjoy the story. didn't see the end coming until it happened. glad he didn't just kill the big bad guy in one book. the parts where he reads the girl's part are really hard to understand which makes sense given what happened to her In book one.

    "Alexandra"

    This was one of the most enjoyable books I've had the pleasure of listening to. The first book 'Midnight Riot ' was good but this was even better. I loved the colorful and historical descriptions of English landmarks and architecture.
    The dry wit of the characters had me chuckling from time to time. The English slang suited the MC's style and was fun to learn a different turn of phrase And K.Holdbrook-Smith was a perfect narrator.
    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an urban fantasy/detective genre. Even those that are just slightly into sci-fi as the mysteries and storyline are just that interesting
    Of particular enjoyment for me was the music intro at the start of each chapter
    I'm a big fan of the Dresden series and would recommend this to his fans

    "Excellent narration"

    Now that I read the first one I am much more into the main characters.
    The narrator does an excellent job with sarcasm and adds to the story.
