Summary
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. Damaged, dispossessed, outcasts, they are brought together in violent and unforeseen ways by London's dark and dangerous underground system
Summary
Jarvis lives in a crumbling house with a view of the Jubilee Line: he loves the tube with all its secrets--its hidden tunnels, its mysterious "ghost" stations, its incidents and accidents, which he records. He lives in a house which was once a school, but now he lets out rooms to the various misfits and outcasts who come in through the tube--a magician and his lovely assistant, a Safeguard volunteer and his falcon, a sinister bear of a man planning to blow up the London Underground..
