Teaser Tuesday: Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch.

Moon Over Soho - Gollancz

There’s no such thing as a full-service forensics team. It’s very expensive, so you order bits of it up from the Home Office, like a Chinese takeaway. Judging by the number of Noddy suits filing past us, Stephanopoulos had gone for the super-deluxe meal for six with extra egg fried rice. I was, I guessed, the fortune cookie.
-- Page 78

After having been very pleasently surprised by Rivers of London, I thought, I might just carry on with the series. Moon Over Soho is book two. Again it's a murder mystery with a supernatural touch that is set in modern day London.
Peter Grant, low ranking police officer of the Metropolitan Police London, wizard's apprentice and general nice guy, is on his next case - which has a lot to do with jazz. Peter is telling the story from his PoV. He's ironic, witty and his analogies to explain police work to ordinary people are weirdly creative. That's why I like him so much and hope the book gets as good as the first.

I like the way the author compared ordering special forensic services to ordering Chinese food. Clever.
My Teaser is from SLIGHTLY CRACKED.
