Rivers of London Volume 3: Black Mould (2017) Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel, Lee Sullivan

This comic occurs between Foxglove Summer and The Hanging Tree . It’s also how Peter ends up working more with Sahra Guleed, who I also adore.

And I love how snarky both of them are about the racism they deal with on the job.

But she is pretty snarky in general, which I love.

I also love her complete and total competence.

As for the story, there is a form of black mould taking on a life of its own, in an uppity housing development, but it also goes back to a discussion Peter had with Dr Walid in book two.

“You can’t die of jazz,” said Dr. Walid. “Can you?”

I thought of Fats Navarro, Billie Holiday, and Charlie Parker who, when he died, was mistaken by a coroner for a man twice his real age.

“You know,” I said, “I think you’ll find you can.”

I do love this series.
