Reviewer: Paul Stanley
Full of fascinating tidbits of London’s weird facts but something that will entertain as well as fascinate the reader. For me, I love finding out the weird and wonderful, the unusual, the stranger than fiction facts and for me this book is something that as a writer I’m keeping on hand for inspiration.
