Ghost hunter, fox whisperer, troublemaker.

It is the summer of 2013 and Abigail Kamara has been left to her own devices. This might, by those who know her, be considered a mistake. While her cousin, police constable and apprentice wizard Peter Grant, is off in the sticks chasing unicorns Abigail is chasing her own mystery. Teenagers around Hampstead Heath have been going missing but before the police can get fully engaged the teens return home – unharmed but vague about where they’ve been.

Aided only by her new friend Simon, her knowledge that magic is real and a posse of talking foxes that think they’re spies, Abigail must venture into the wilds of Hampstead to discover who is luring the teenagers and more importantly – why?

Review of 'What Abigail Did That Summer' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Another great "Rivers" story by Aaronovitch, although it obviously has no appearance of Peter Grant - his cousin Abigail refers to him a lot though. She has an altogether different "voice" as a narrator, and that makes her interesting, although the story itself has broadly the same structure as earlier works. Very well done shorter work, I'd love to read more of Abigail.
