False Value is the 8th book by Ben Aaronovitch in the Rivers of London series. I bought the hard cover copy with the glow in the dark cover, and – much to my surprise – it turned out to be a signed copy. I only found out when I cracked it open to start reading.
Peter Grant is facing becoming a father of twins, and is both enthusiastic, and quite worried. He takes a job as a security guard at a London start up called the Serious Cybernetics Company, which is run by Sillicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner. The job soon becomes more serious, as Peter tries to figure out what exactly Skinner is hiding. And how it all connects to the magical demi-monde that he’s a part of.
