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 10 contenders in 2018’s truly fabulous Ultimate Londoner competition. With a five-million-pound 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 John Mordred, the intelligence officer, its unsolicited exposure is profoundly unwelcome. So far, so irritating. And inconvenient. 

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.

Great Entertainment

The Ultimate Londoner.
A great read just as the others in the series.
This is probably the most complex plot of the series. It keeps you guessing right up to the end.
John Mordred is the archetypical Brit. Cool calm and slightly odd.
A really good read that I highly recommend.
