Publisher's Summary

There have been ghosts on the London Underground, sad, harmless specters whose presence does little more than give a frisson to traveling and boost tourism. But now there's a rash of sightings on the Metropolitan Line and these ghosts are frightening, aggressive, and seem to be looking for something. 

Enter PC Peter Grant, junior member of the Metropolitan Police's Special Assessment Unit, AKA The Folly, AKA the only police officers whose official duties include ghost hunting. Together with Jaget Kumar, his counterpart at the British Transport Police, he must brave the terrifying crush of London's rush hour to find the source of the ghosts. 

Joined by Peter's wannabe wizard cousin, a preschool river god, and Toby the ghost hunting dog, their investigation takes a darker tone as they realize that a real person's life might just be on the line. 

And time is running out to save them.

Another terrific Rivers of London adventure

The Furthest Station is so smooth you take for granted Ben Aaronovitch's excellently written story and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith's superb narration.

Vivid, engaging, three dimensional characters? Check. Amusing dialog and clever asides? Check. The introduction of fascinating magical creatures and things? Check. Encapsulated in an intriguing mystery that will leave you satisfied at its close and wanting more? Check.

And there will be more. Soon. There's several references to the events in What Abigail Did Last Summer and we finally get to learn about it in March of 2021. Woot! Abigail's brief interaction with the talking foxes in The Furthest Station piqued my curiosity big time and now there's a whole adventure with them just around the corner. I'm looking forward to its release even more.
