Starting with Midnight Riot, Aaronovitch has created his own genre of supernatural crime novel, sort of grown up Harry Potter meets CSI: London, and it's really funny and really well done. Whispers Underground is the third in the series and begins with the death of an American exchange student in the London Underground system. Quintessentially British in its self-deprecating humor and flamboyant one-liners, the narrative voice is fresh but cynical, and the recurring characters both magical and very human. I for one, want more.
