There is a new novella in this series, The Furthest Station that was published on 28th September. Not been able to get it yet but would be interested in any comments if anyone else has read it.

Here is the summary -

Spoiler for Hiden:
A brand new novella in the PC Grant series!There's something going bump on the Metropolitan line and Sergeant Jaget Kumar knows exactly who to call.It's PC Peter Grant's speciality . . .Only it's more than going 'bump'. Traumatised travellers have been reporting strange encounters on their morning commute, with strangely dressed people trying to deliver an urgent message. Stranger still, despite calling the police themselves, within a few minutes the commuters have already forgotten the encounter - making the follow up interviews rather difficult. So with a little help from Abigail and Toby the ghost hunting dog, Peter and Jaget are heading out on a ghost hunting expedition.Because finding the ghost and deciphering their urgent message might just be a matter of life and death.
“This is the problem with even lesser demons. They come to your doorstep in velvet coats and polished shoes. They tip their hats and smile and demonstrate good table manners. They never show you their tails.”

I've read it, @Lady Ty. It's fairly standard for the series. I enjoyed it, but it doesn't really answer any questions or advance the current story. If you didn't read it and went onto the next book you wouldn't have missed anything. If you enjoy the series, and I know you do (hence the name), you'll like it. It does have some cool stuff with Abigail, and I'd love to see a novella from her point of view. Not enough Beverley for mine.
I will expand your TBR pile.

Thank you @Elfy, will get it later on but I realise it is just a gap filler. Glad Abigail re-appears I liked her as well.

Feel they are dragging out the Beverley situation, because it will go on forever as the main background conflict. I want to know more of Nightingale and Molly though. ;D

You’re PC Peter Grant! A down-to-earth practical copper who happens to deal with the things which go bump in London, you’re a steady and capable apprentice wizard with sturdy detective skills and a great sense for when to get involved and when to make a careful retreat

I've really enjoyed the first three books of this series but it does feel like it's slowing down now.

I've read till Hanging Tree just last year...yet I don't recall they story at all. And have no inclination to finish the upcoming books. Yet, I have a favorable impression in my mind on the series. Weird!
