9780140156911: King Solomon's Carpet

Eccentric Jarvis lives in a cumbling 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.

Review:

'The most brilliant novelist writiing in English today' Daily Telegraph 'The tension grows... an overwhelming sense of foreboding... when the unravelling takes place, it is brilliantly unexpected and original' The Times 'I longed to know what would happen next. Towards the end the tension fairly gets you by the throat' Sunday Express
