Moon Over Soho

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch

by Ben Aaronovitch

 

This is the second book in the Rivers of London series and takes our friendly magician/cop into the world of Jazz.

 

It pretty much stands alone and I get the feeling that all the books will be stand alone adventures, but with overlapping threads. A few tendrils from the first story work into this one but not in a way that would prevent someone from getting the full effect of this one if they read it first.

 

There was some unexpected sexual content that bordered on the graphic. It caught me by surprise because there was none if the first book. It wasn't quite enough to spoil it though.

 

Overall, I didn't find this one quite up to the first book's standard, but it was still enjoyable and I'm looking forward to reading more of the series.
