About this Event

Our guest, the author Julie Anderson, discusses her latest work - a Westminster thriller and crime novel, Plague , with particular reference to its setting.

The events in the book take place mainly in a small area around Whitehall and Westminster, yet the story ranges across different kinds of London, from a high rise council flat in Elephant and Castle, to the gentrified Victoriana of south London and a Georgian townhouse in Mayfair.

At times this London is airy and brilliant, at times claustrophobic and dark. From its high towers to the subterranean 'lost' river Tyburn, this novel could not take place anywhere else.
