Publisher's Summary

This is London in the eyes of its beggars, bankers, coppers, gangsters, carers, witch doctors and sex workers. 

This is London in the voices of Arabs, Afghans, Nigerians, Poles, Romanians and Russians.

This is London as you've never seen it before.

Well researched, truthful and brave

I loved reading all the information, truth of the hidden London which I suspected existed but never saw with my own eyes.
