A 25-year old woman, who had never before travelled by tube, decides to take the Underground home. It is the last mistake she will ever make. Another brilliantly macabre book by Barbara Vine.
'Vine, quite audaciously, deliberately, makes the London Underground the central character of the book... The tension grows, patiently, hardly noticeably. Suddenly, there is an overwhelming sense of foreboding, of inevitable awfulness. But where from and why and how? Vine is the least predictable of writers, and when the unravelling takes place, it is brilliantly unexpected and original'
