About the Author

Ben Aaronovitch is perhaps best known for his series of Peter Grant novels, which began with Rivers of London. Mixing police procedural with urban fantasy and London history, these novels, the latest of which is The Hanging Tree, have now sold over a million copies worldwide. A new Peter Grant novella, The Furthest Station, is now available. Ben is also known for his TV writing, writing fan-favourite episodes of Doctor Who; 'Remembrance of the Daleks' and 'Battlefield'. He wrote an episode of BBC hospital drama, Casualty, and contributed to cult SF show, Jupiter Moon. Ben was born, raised and lives in London, and says he will leave the city when they prise it out of his cold, dead fingers. Lee Sullivan began his comics career at Marvel UK, drawing Transformers and Robocop for the US before moving on to Judge Dredd and Thunderbirds - and Doctor Who, for which he continues to draw, for a variety of publishers. He played saxophone in a Roxy Music tribute band for a decade. He has dotted various Roxy Music-related gags through this series!

Reviews

"The book is enjoyable on two levels, for both the complete novice and for the knowledgeable fan. A fun read." - Nerdly "It's not often you'll find an entirely new comic book series that's promising well written story, some brilliantly complimentary artwork, and a sense of fun " - Graphic Policy "Men in Black meets Knight Rider" - Latino Review "Two things I love are magic, and a good mystery, so for me this is pretty much perfect. Essential reading..." - Big Comic Page "An enjoyable ride." - Down The Tubes "It's engaging, thrilling and has just enough of that real world work spliced with the magic/supernatural elements to make plausible and fantastical at the same time." - Reading With A Flight Ring ..". very entertaining" - Need To Consume "Body Work is an accomplished mystery and a well-created urban fantasy. Readers who are already hooked on the books will enjoy this series; readers who haven't yet discovered Rivers of London will find this a good introduction." - Fangirl Nation "Body Work is a delightful continuation of Aaronovitch's story, capturing the spirit and tone of the novels and bringing them to life with what is essentially a quick crash course in the world of Rivers Of London for the uninitiated." - Geeky Girls Love Sci Fi "The magic--or "falcon," as police slang would have it--is pleasingly grounded here, creating a world of subtle intricacies rather than dazzling fireworks, and the supernatural is blended into the police procedural with satisfying realism. The characters are familiar but engaging enough, and the art does much to make each face distinctive and expressive as well as give the story its down-to-earth sturdiness." - Booklist The book is enjoyable on two levels, for both the complete novice and for the knowledgeable fan.
