London is as much a character in the Strike stories as Strike and Robin. Right from The Cuckoo’s Calling, we are introduced to a number of London locations; from Strike’s office in central London; to the wealthy neighbourhood of Mayfair where Lula Landry lived; right across to East London, and the very cool, very youthful, Dalston.
The Silkworm, rooted in the world of Publishing, shows us the London of the literary and artistic world, with smart offices and grand restaurants. Career of Evil takes us into a different type of London, the sometimes seedy, beating heart of Soho, and the post-war concrete estates of the South. And finally, the London of Lethal White; of Parliament and private members clubs, the buzz of Camden, and the historical docks of charming Deptford.
