    Summary

    His mouth twisted in something that was either a smile or a grimace or both. He understood.

    ‘How do you manage it?’ she asked, because her own methods of putting riverine dignity above personal grievances were starting to buckle under a weight they weren’t built to hold. ‘Making decisions like that go against everything you want to do, everything you feel you should be doing… How do you make yourself keep going?’

    ‘Ah, that’s fairly simple. I ask myself what Peter would do.’

    ---------

    The story of how Beverley moved into the tech cave during the section of Lies Sleeping where Peter's gone missing, and some of the conversations between her and Nightingale that happened there.

    Summary

    At the beginning of Operation Jennifer, certain people at the Met got interested in a comparative assessment of magical power. My best answer to what you do when faced with a practitioner of Nightingale’s calibre is that you come at them with another Nightingale. Failing that, my personal preference is to summon the closest friendly river goddess and hope it's high tide. Not currently an option.

    All I had on me now was a sanded mobile, a suspiciously well-fitting suit, and what wits I had to rub together.

    Time to use them, Grant.

    Summary

    “I must warn you, I am unreasonably fast with this,” Nightingale said, cradling what looked like a miniature spinning sun in his left hand.

    “Really? Faster than a speeding bullet?” Cabal replied, with the confidence of a man standing comfortably behind the best that Mr Webley&Scott could offer.

    Summary

    Someone is stealing computer equipment from across London, and no one can work out who or, for that matter, why. With alarm bells ringing, the legendary Flying Squad turn to Peter for help, and Peter turns to Dr David Mellenby, an astrophysicist who knows rather more about magic than Peter expected. In an investigation that criss crosses the capital, but especially the river, Peter learns more than he ever wanted to about quantum, cryptocurrencies, and just what it takes to destroy a computer.

    Sometimes Nightingale wondered what would have happened if Molly had turned out to be human. Or, if he was being completely honest, if he himself had turned out to be more human.

    Summary

    There is, for various reasons, no easy way to say to a person hey - your friend and mine, the last competent magician in England, stepped out at ten this morning with a last admonition to his apprentices to get their latin homework done whilst he followed up on an uninteresting lead on our latest magical murder case and he hasn’t been seen in the eight hours since.

    Nightingale worries a witch; Peter is in the dog house; Lesley rails against the concept of politeness; the world is deprived of another Fenton video on YouTube.

    Summary

    His attacker was on the floor, curled in a tight motionless ball. Nightingale stared, catalogued the long tangled hair, tattered and shabby clothes that had once been a maid's uniform.

    "Molly?" he said. "Molly, it's me."

    Summary

    Time and Destiny are a fickle thing.
    Do you know the feeling, when you know that you will regret it for the rest of your life if you don't do something?
    And when you can pinpoint years later the exact moment where you went wrong? If you had just reacted differently you would not be here, but somewhere else. somewhere better!
    Suche wistful thinking can drive you mad and give you a reason to better yourself. Peter Grant had several of this moment in his life. And as he lay dying in the ruins of the Pergola in Hampstead Heath, he contemplated all these moments. Would he act differently in those moments, if given the chance? hell yes. But those maybes and could have's, should have's are just dust and mist.
    But there are also those moments where you do the right thing even if it is not easy in that moment.
    Time and Destiny are fickle lovers, they have their favourites, their champions and they love to meddle.

    Peter Grant was the first English apprentice wizard in over seventy years. Again.

    Summary

    "Be honest, sir," I said, scrabbling for the left flipper, "I look like a moron."

    "I’ve seen you look moronic before, Peter," Nightingale said, flicking the wheel right and sending us careening down a side street and me thudding against the left-hand door. "This does not even, as you put it, 'crack the top ten.'"
