Waiting on Wednesday: Poison City (London Tau) by Paul Crilley.


Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Each Wednesday you get to highlight a book that your really looking forward to. This is week I’ve chosen:

Poison City (London Tau) by Paul Crilley.


The name’s Gideon Tau, but everyone just calls me London. I work for the Delphic Division, the occult investigative unit of the South African Police Service. My life revolves around two things – finding out who killed my daughter and imagining what I’m going to do to the bastard when I catch him.

I have two friends. The first is my boss, Armitage, a fifty-something DCI from Yorkshire who looks more like someone’s mother than a cop. Don’t let that fool you. The second is the dog, my magical spirit guide. He talks, he watches TV all day, and he’s a mean drunk.

Life is pretty routine – I solve crimes, I search for my daughter’s killer. Wash, rinse, repeat. Until the day I’m called out to the murder of a ramanga – a low-key vampire – basically, the tabloid journalist of the vampire world. It looks like an open and shut case. There’s even CCTV footage of the killer.

Except… the face on the CCTV footage? It’s the face of the man who killed my daughter. I’m about to face a tough choice. Catch her killer or save the world? I can’t do both.

It’s not looking good for the world.

The expected publication date is: August 11th 2016 (UK).

  1. I totally didn’t see the vamp thing coming when I started to read the synopsis. Sounds interesting. This reminds me I was supposed to do Nevernight. Ugh! Maybe next week. I have a ton of stuff to write already. When are they releasing this in the US?

      1. That’s weird. They sell everything here, except Bad Education, which pisses me off so much. 😂 Yeah, rub it in, love. You know how much I like when you torture me. 😂 Why don’t you send me more pictures of the book on Twitter? Brat! 😝
