Two girls go missing from a rural English town. Peter Grant is sent to that town on a routine mission to check up on individuals with magic powers, living in the area. Initially, his inquiries go no where, finding no connection between these individuals and the missing girls. But he does not return to London. Instead, he decides to stay on and help the local police. He gradually gets drawn further and further into the investigation, finding that there’s more to the case than meets the eye. I won’t go any further than that. Since, this is a mystery story and, therefore, is easily spoilt.
I have mentioned, in the previous reviews, that reading along with awards encourages you to read outside of your comfort zone. Apologising for repetition, I have to say that, I would have never had read this book if it hadn’t been for the Locus Recommended long list. I don’t know why, but, I never felt any incentive to read this book. I now have to admit that i was missing out.. This book is a fun read.
