1st Printing. Signed. 392 pages. Published in 2011. The author's breakthrough "Peter Grant" novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the American Edition. The novel was subsequently published in the United States as "Midnight Riot". All of the other sequel-novels are published as part of the "Rivers of London" Series. Published in a very small and limited first print run (as a hardcover original) of reportedly 5000 copies only that sold out upon publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Ben Denis Aaronovitch's "Rivers of London". The most imaginative and most ambitious police procedural-cum-urban fantasy novel AND ongoing Series of our time. "Probationary Constable Peter Grant dreams of being a detective in London's Metropolitan Police. Too bad his superior plans to assign him to the Case Progression Unit, where the biggest threat he'll face is a paper cut. But Peter's prospects change in the aftermath of a puzzling murder, when he gains exclusive information from an eyewitness who happens to be a ghost. Peter's ability to speak with the lingering dead brings him to the attention of Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, who investigates crimes involving magic and other manifestations of the uncanny. Now, as a wave of brutal and bizarre murders engulfs the city, Peter is plunged into a world where gods and goddesses mingle with mortals and a long-dead evil is making a comeback on a rising tide of magic" (Publisher's blurb). As Diana Gabaldon raves on the DJ cover, "Rivers of London" answers the all-important, life-changing question: What would happen if Harry Potter, Child Wizard Par Excellence, grew up to become a Private Investigator? He would become Peter Grant. An absolute "must-have" title for Ben Aaronovitch and "Rivers of London"/Peter Grant collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, dated, and inscribed ("lined") in blue ink-pen on the title page by the author: " 'Fuck me I can do magic', Ben Aaronovitch 10/1/2011". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The inscription is Peter Grant's favorite and most-often quoted line. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed, dated, and inscribed ("lined") copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: This inaugural title of the "Peter Grant" Series is a global bestseller, but was published in a first print run of 5000 copies only. As such, copies available online command as much as $500. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant novelists of our time. A fine collectible copy. ISBN 0575097566. Bookseller Inventory #
