Ts that are 'get out of hell free' cardsBut the team's unlikely guide a bestselling author can't offer them much insight and their other option the Rat King speaks only in riddlesRelying on old fashioned police work and improvising with their new skills only lands them in deeper water and they soon realize that the investigation is going to hell literally And if they're not careful they may be going with it The Severed Streets is the second urban fantasy by bestselling Doctor Who writer Paul Cornel. Any book which opens with the brutal lovingly detailed murder of a thinly disguised Danny Alexander is going to win plenty of readers over straight away Not that this is clunky Pat Mills agitprop by any means but it is a little angry with the state of modern London as who wouldn't be There's an intricate gritty dance played out as Cornell uses fantasy for one of the things it does best making the metaphorical concrete So London's memory and its subcultures are at loggerheads with the new influx of money but this is not about either side being right or wrong for they both have plenty of blood on their hands and ugliness in their plans And then of course you get the further interrogation even of that set up because as per a persistent refrain anything can mean anything these days and what does that do to magic an art which is all about signifiersOne uote on the jacket says that if Ben Aaronovitch's occult police books are The Bill Cornell's are The Sweeney This is bullshit in that it implies Aaronovitch is simply not very good and Cornell is good unreconstructed fun Neither is remotely true Far closer to say that Aaronovitch is Brooklyn Nine Nine where even the murder cases are mostly funny while Cornell is The Shield bad decisions and the reek of corruption hanging over even the lightest moments This is a book to give any Londoner nightmares if read in bed and uneasy moments even in daylight though perhaps reading it on the site of one of the Ripper murders was asking for trouble It's a book which comes up with a supernatural depression metaphor to rival Rowling then twists the knife even further with what happens once that price is paid It is though page turning also bloody hard going in places though mostly in the best possible wayRupert Murdoch and protestors' V masks also put in veiled appearances; in the latter case I think a slightly too thorough masking of the mask slightly harms the impact of the tale Interestingly though no disguise is needed for Frankie Boyle or Neil Gaiman the latter of whom has a fairly major role to play If nothing else it confirms him as a good sport
