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...

Okay, I came back to this and added a star to make 5 stars. Why? Because I'd read this book sometime ago, but can't get it out of my head, partly because it was so weird/unusual. So, I think it's worth 5 stars just for that reason.

A good story about the London Underground and some buskers who play music down there. One character is writing a history of the tube trains which is inserted throughout the book and was quite interesting. There is also bombings and young children riding on the outside roofs of the trains. This is a real page turner.
