London Falling, Paperback Book


`He's gone and written a novel too! I suspect it will be just as good as everything else he's written, and that's not fair at all.' - George R R MartinLondon Falling by Paul Cornell is an exciting urban gothic mystery, where dark powers gather in the battle for London's streets.The dark is rising . . . Detective Inspector James Quill is about to complete the drugs bust of his career.

Then his prize suspect Rob Toshack is murdered in custody.

Furious, Quill pursues the investigation, co-opting intelligence analyst Lisa Ross and undercover cops Costain and Sefton.

But nothing about Toshack's murder is normal. Toshack had struck a bargain with a vindictive entity, whose occult powers kept Toshack one step ahead of the law - until his luck ran out.

Now, the team must find a 'suspect' who can bend space and time and alter memory itself. And they will kill again. As the group starts to see London's sinister magic for themselves, they have two choices: panic or use their new abilities.

Then they must hunt a terrifying supernatural force the only way they know how: using police methods, equipment and tactics.

But they must all learn the rules of this new game - and quickly.

More than their lives will depend on it.
