Red (Electrical) Tape

Matthew Swift gets his wires crossed with the Midnight Mayor, London’s legendary protector, in this second book in the series by Kate Griffin. Swift doesn’t believe in the Midnight Mayor personally, as that would entail believing that the mighty city needs protection. What force could be powerful enough to threaten the entire city? As the magical wards of the city begin to fail one by one, it falls to Swift to unravel the augury firsthand.

The Midnight Mayor didn’t have quite the same electrical effect on me as A Madness of Angels (see review posted on 5/12/09 ), but Griffin doesn’t pull any punches in this sequel! I would recommend this series to fans of China Miéville’s Kraken.
