The Hanging Tree by Ben Aabromovitch. Published by Berkley

This is the 6th book in the Rivers of London series, and if you haven’t read any of these books, you’re really missing out. The books center around Peter Grant, a London Met cop who investigates cases that are on the supernatural side. It all began when Peter met a ghost in the first book and learned he was England’s last wizard. In this outing, something spooky is happening in the mansions of the uber wealthy in Mayfair. Hundreds of years ago, this was the location of the Tyburn gallows and it looks as if some of the departed didn’t really depart. Peter will have to do battle with a ferocious river-god if he is to keep London safe. There is nothing cutesy or Harry Potter-like in this series, it’s dark and compelling
