The Ultimate Londoner (Hardcover)
A 51-year-old pub landlord from Hammersmith, a DJ from Lambeth, a prize-winning novelist influenced by Charles Dickens and Iain Sinclair, a young British intelligence officer: just four of the ten contenders in 2018's truly fabulous 'Ultimate Londoner' competition With a 5 million prize-pot and an awards ceremony on the top floor of The Gherkin, it's the last word in up-to-the-minute kudos.
Or perhaps not. To begin with, no one has the faintest idea where it came from. Or how it garnered so much publicity. And not even the 'candidates' themselves know how they were selected. For the intelligence officer, John Mordred, its unsolicited exposure is profoundly unwelcome.
So far, so irritating. But then the candidates start dying.
As Mordred investigates, the truth slowly emerges. And it's stranger and more shocking than anyone could possibly have imagined.
