All three authors have set their fictions in a non-fictional place, London. Each writing about the London that they know, in order to give their characters details, and actual places in which to live, work & play. By picking out the geographic details of each novel it is possible to construct a map of the London each inhabits. Showing the ways the city has provided a changing backdrop, across the centuries.
