The novel is set mainly in London, the capital of the UK. It is an ancient city, with a diverse population of around 7 million people. Its character and form vary as much as its people, from historic palaces to mews houses, rural parkland to tightly-packed urban high-rise flats, museums and art galleries to warehouses and offices.


London is famous for many things: Buckingham Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, red buses, black cabs, Pearly Queens, Trafalgar Square and Big Ben... the list goes on and on.
