With a Russian Night Witch in custody, Peter and Nightingale should be having a lot more luck chasing down a rogue Leshy, a murderous spirit of the forest. But when the Russian Mafia are involved, nothing goes smoothly! Even worse, Lesley is back in London, and it's anyone's guess as to her agenda!

    I feel the more the writers Andrew Cartmel and Ben Aaronovitch seem to bring back the strange masked women, the more I'm curious to know why they chose to have her in a mask. While artistically well done by Lee Sullivan, it does leave one with questions about the woman. I do have one about the women on beautiful main cover; is she the water women from the first issue?

    This is my first exposure to the Rivers of London series and I have to admit, I'm really interested in checking out the original novels. It is really cool that the original author of the series is also writing this comic series, so if the books are anywhere near as intriguing as this series has been, I'm sure I'll like it quite a bit. Although with that being said, because I'm not familiar with the source material, there was a scene in this issue where I felt a bit lost and that was when May is talking to a woman who wears a white mask. The woman in the white mask has been in previous issue, but I've never really understood who she was and what her deal is. Outside of that, I'm finding this series is a interesting gateway into this little universe. Read Full Review

    A bit of a slow burner this time round, but still entertaining and a few more pieces added to the existing puzzle, even as we discover that puzzle is actually larger than we first thought. The characters always entertain, and you always have the impression something big is just around the corner. The 'tease' is part of the armoury of a good writer, and Aaronovitch and Cartmel can tease with the best of them. I am certainly looking forward to what next issue brings, as I'm willing to bet we are going to move up a gear or two as plots and sub plots start to intertwine and resolutions begin to occur.
