Travel Guide


Oh be jeepers. This is NOT a London which is going to be on a tourist trail any time soon. It would eclipse some of the horrors on the Jack the Ripper tour that’s for sure. And many of the pubs and cinemas mentioned in this book aren’t real for obvious reasons. Still, a walk over Blackfriars bridge and along to Portman Square and Baker Street in particular will more than show you a few of the more macabre sites in the book.

Imagine being a reporter chasing a serial killer around the streets of London. No where is safe – from the late night office where a woman is working alone to a fully packed cinema. All of those glass fronted buildings which you can’t see into as the internal lights and the lights from the street black out anything that maybe there – a body slumped up against the walls for example.
