Summary (From the publisher):

Narcoleptic Adam Buckley is sleeping through his life. He sees people at parties he doesn't remember meeting, but who know him. Deep in London's sprawling Underground, he sees shadows figures beckoning him into tunnels not on any map. As Adam tries to find the secret to his own memories beneath the city, he realizes he is not alone.

A madman has taken to pushing people onto the tracks, and it may be someone Adam knows. If only he can remember, before it is too late... Suggestions of half remembered life, and the encroaching threat of violence begins to engulf him, and everyone he knows.

Conrad Williams masterful novel pulls back layer after layer, revealing the grinning skull that lies beneath the face of the city.

Blurbs:
  • "This is a book which effortlessly slips sideways from horror to psychological thriller to fantasy to urban social comedy to neo-noir; Williams is utterly in love with all of these genres and part of the point of London Revenant is to stuff as many of them together as possible." Time Out
