KING SOLOMON'S CARPET by Barbara Vine (hier online bestellen)
Jarvis lives in a big old house with a bell tower, overlooking the Jubilee line. He loves the tube with all
its secrets - its hidden tunnels, its mysterious ''ghost'' stations, its spectacular incidents and frightening
accidents. The house was once a school, but now he lets out rooms. People gather there from the tube. There is
Tom, the lost busker, and Jed, who keeps the hawk and uses the trains in the night hours; Jasper and the truant
boys riding terrifyingly high above the tracks; and Alice, who wants to forget the baby she has deserted. Then
there is Axel, who is an enigma. Axel hates the Underground - he goes down there simply to remind himself how
much he hates it, riding around, formulating his plan.
