Being optimistic and seeing The Hanging Tree was once meant to come out tomorrow, did hopeful check.
Nah. Latest date Book Depository and Audible is 21 Sept. 2017
On Amazon.UK if you are game to pre order now it is £10.49 instead of £14.99 but that's a very long time to wait.
On Twitter Ben said definitive release date soon, don't know if this is it. Ben seems OK been appearing at Waterstones .
BTW Old Tyburn River burst its banks on hearing of Brexit, clearly someone is annoyed with Boris and his mates. ;)

Oh my gawd I'm so glad you updated this thread, I didn't even remember it was here!

And looking at the fan-art on the previous page, I'm also with Jmack: apart from imagining Molly as much taller and creepier, everyone else is pretty much spot on :D

If you dig deeper into the rich chocolatey goodness of this thread you will find a couple of links to Peter Grant short stories Ben wrote one for the London Olympics and the other for the PO railway maintenance depot being opened as a fuction venue.

Have you started on Moon over Soho yet?

Double post because we are all still waiting for The Hanging Tree to turn up one day. :(

Found these top pics for Jmack's reading thread as he is hopefully a new convert. Think we should also have them here.



Here's the full link so you can see more pics with individual names.

Not really how I pictured most of them, not sure why Nightingale is a distorted version of Paul McGann either :P

Have a moment

Not as good as a much delayed novel but better than a poke in the eye...

Question: after the first, do you have to read the stories in order?
My library has got other books but not Moon over Soho, and I was wondering...

Yup. Definitely needs to be in order I'd say.

Moon Over Soho is a good one too, very dark and twisty at times, though I guessed the solution pretty easily.

Thanks - I'll use my gift cards then... after I finish all the unread books at home, which are really making me nervous (need to stop wondering around bookshops and getting more books ::))

Thanks @Rostum, for keeping an eye out and telling us about these small treats.

Chapter 1 excerpt The hanging Tree here, and more next Monday

@m3mnoch I think you should give Rivers of London/ Midnight Riot a go before your trip next month, assuming you haven't already?
