I'd be very surprised if Aaranovitch isn't a Hitchhiker's fan, so this seems like a solid guess to me.(less)

Aaaaaaah so good so good so good! I loved having a book in this series that focused more closely on Peter, Nightingale and Beverley again. I love the big ensemble plots the last two books had, but this was nice as well, and there was so much character and relationship development here (especially between Bev and Peter), which was very necessary and great to see. The ethics of Rivers are finally discussed in more depth, and in ways that promise exciting future developents.

Ben Aaronovitch's career started with a bang writing for Doctor Who, subsided in the middle and then, as is traditional, a third act resurgence with the bestselling Rivers of London series.

Born and raised in London he says that he'll leave his home when they prise his city out of his cold dead fingers.
