The Follycast Episode 7: Lies Sleeping

In this month’s episode…

…..we review Lies Sleeping, book seven in the Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch. The book brings to a conclusion the Faceless Man and Mr Punch plotlines (or does it?) in a story that somehow ties together magical bells, oubliettes, The Silmarillion, Merlin, King Arthur, goat sacrifices, foxes, cheese puffs, St Pauls, Glastonbury, Roman London and Covent Garden Tesco Metro.

In our next episode we will be reviewing the recently released book of short stories ‘Tales From the Folly’


Hosted by Margaret Holborn and Richard Marks, with Jan Trott and Jennie Beck

Produced by Richard Marks for Uncertain Smile productions

Theme tune: ‘London Is Inspired’ by Cutwater:
