Neverwhere - Neil GaimanUnder the streets of London there's a place most people could never even dream of.

A single act of kindness catapults him out of his workday existence and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and utterly bizarre. And a strange destiny awaits him down here, beneath his native city: Neverwhere.

John Webster’s The White Devil depicts a sinister world of intrigue and murderous infidelity, while The Changeling, perhaps
