Rivers Of London Vol. 9: Monday, Monday (2022) Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel, José María Beroy

Monday MondayThe ninth comic jumps back and forth in time, both in the present day, as well as into Nightingale’s past.

Monday Monday First think I really liked about this story: Stephanopoulus. We get a lot of her POV. Also, she is described pretty much exactly as she is in the books.

She is good at her job, and we get to see that.

(Also, we get to see the chickens.)

Monday MondaySecondly, we get to see pieces of Nightingale’s past: his time and school and brief glimpses of the war.

The bad thing here, is that I initially couldn’t figure out who the hell the character was supposed to be. Nightingale looks plastic, like he’s had too much plastic surgery.

That is just squicky.

Monday MondayThe third thing we some Abigail getting into trouble. Which is to be expected. Though her companion in trouble wasn’t expected.

And finally, we get some important glimpses into Peter’s family life, including his twin daughters.

I found myself enjoying those bits, especially once I realized why they were important.

So there is stuff that is definintely going to be referenced in the books, although I don’t think it was in the last novel (I’ve listened to so many books since I read that, I don’t clearly remember all the details).
