Everyone is always out there searching for someone and something, usually for a lover, usually for love. And this is a love story. But the murderee - Nicola Six - is searching for something and someone else: her murderer. She kws the time, she kws the place, she kws the motive, she kws the means. She just doesn't kw the man. London Fields is a brilliant, funny and multi-layered vel. It is a book in which the narrator, Samson Young, enters the Black Cross, a thoroughly undesirable public house, and finds the main players of his drama assembled, just waiting to begin. It's a gift of a story from real life ...all Samson has to do is write it as it happens.
