Review: Rivers of London #2.3

RiversOfLondon_03_Cover_B_ALTWith a Russian Night Witch in custody, Peter and Nightingale should be having a lot more luck chasing down a rogue Leshy – a murderous spirit of the forest. But when the Russian Mafia are involved, nothing goes smoothly! Even worse, Lesley is back in London – and it’s anyone’s guess as to her agenda!

Kidnapping, magic, and a possible re-ignition of something from the Cold War, that’s Rivers of London #2.3. A mysterious unnamed figure from Nightangale’s past returns, with an offer. Meanwhile Peter and her try to find the missing Russian child. They’re trying to uncover the truth of the kidnapping as well as find the child and the culprits.

I feel the more the writers Andrew Cartmel and Ben Aaronovitch seem to bring back the strange masked women, the more I’m curious to know why they chose to have her in a mask. While artistically well done by Lee Sullivan, it does leave one with questions about the woman. I do have one about the women on beautiful main cover; is she the water women from the first issue?
