Finished 'Whispers Underground'

One thing I did like about Happy Beaver was the random and frequent pop culture shout-outs, most of which I didn't get, I grant you. But Carey referenced Leonard Cohen at least twice, so go him. Aaronovitch turns out to do it too, and for me better, by working in the Low King of the Dwarfs at a very appropriate place.

Synchronicity also gets a look-in with that talking fox line. On account of the first 100 Demons story in the new volume is all about the fox spirit mother and daughter, the ones who study flower arrangement and tea ceremony
