Eccentric Jarvis lives in a crumbling schoolhouse overlooking the tube line, compiling his obsessive history of the Underground. A group of misfits are also drawn towards his strange house: Alice, who has run away from her husband and baby; Tom, the busker who rescues her; truant Jasper, who finds his terrifying thrills on the tube; and enigmatic Axel, whose deadly secret casts a shadow over all their lives. Damaged, dispossessed, outcasts, they are brought together in violent and unforeseen ways by London's dark and dangerous underground system.

    " Like Rachel, I find myself reading this again and again, getting different things out of it each time. I shall definitely give it another go - after House of Stairs! "

    " A somewhat strange book. I enjoyed it but it was not what I expected. If you're interested in finding out about the history of the London Underground while being entertained by a series of vignettes which do tie together as a complete story you will enjoy this. I found the transition between the story and the London Underground to be a bit abrupt at times. "

    " Great book for a week-end on the Oregon coast. Fireplace, ocean view, good company, good book. "
