London is the backdrop and the connecting fabric of these three lives, reinforcing Ackroyd’s grand theme that place and history create, surround, and engulf us. From bustling, cut-throat Fleet Street to hallowed London publishing houses, from the wealth and corruption of Chelsea to the smoky shadows of Limehouse and Hackney, this is an exploration of the city, peering down its streets, riding on its underground, and drinking in its pubs and clubs. Everything is possible - not only in the new freedom of the 1960s but also in London’s timeless past.

An intriguing and original story
This was an intriguing story in a quiet and original way. A week later I am still thinking about the plot and characters. The complexities of ordinary people are not laboured and the links in the plot between people are delicate and believable. As time goes by I think this book could become one of the memorable downloads of the year.
I am aware that an apparently less than enthusiastic review using highly charged language might not encourage someone to try a novel - the reviews on audible seem to get ever more extreme - but this book is definitely worth listening to.
