There is a murderer, there is a murderee, and there is a foil.
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 knows the time, she knows the place, she knows the motive, she knows the means.
She just doesn't know the man. London Fields is a brilliant, funny and multi-layered novel.
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.
