Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch
Ben Aaronovitch wrote one of my all-time favourite books, "The Also People", so when I saw "Rivers of London" in the bookshop I snapped it up, and would have read it sooner if it weren't for my ongoing efforts to reduce the backlog of unfinished books (trying to finish a part-read book in between each 'want to read' book).
Peter Grant is a constable just finishing up his probationary period in the Met when he accidentally interviews a ghost about a murder - accidentally because until then he didn't believe in ghosts.  This leads to him becoming the apprentice of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England.
It reminds me of the Harry Dresden and the Felix Castor series', with someone discovering that there is still magic, and he can do it, while the rest of the world (us) carry on oblivious.  But for all that it's readable and enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to the next one.
