"Tom, Jimmy and Itzhak have grown up together in the crowded slums of Walworth. They are used to narrow streets, the bustle of East Lane market, extended families weaving in and out of each other's lives. All three boys are expected to follow their father's trades and stay close to home. But Tom has wider dreams. So when he hears of a scouting trip, sailing from Waterloo to Sheppey and the mouth of the Thames - he is determined to go. And Itzhak and Jimmy go with him.

Inspired by real events, this is the story of three friends, and a tragedy that will change them for ever. It is also a song of south London, of working class families with hidden histories, of a bright and complex world long neglected. London Lies Beneath is a powerful and compelling novel, rich with life and full of wisdom."

This is the best book I have read in a long, long time. Loved everything about it. I have lived in south London for years, and really enjoyed reading about the life in the turn of the century. The story is tragic, the writing is beautiful. This book will stay on my mind for some time. A great read!

Fairly decent book based around a real-life tragedy. Interesting to read about the now-gone life of the South London costermongers 100 years ago.
