[Read by Steven Pacey]

London Fields is Martin Amis' murder story for the end of the millennium.

The murderee is Nicola Six, a ''black hole'' of sex and self-loathing who is intent on orchestrating her own extinction. The murderer may be Keith Talent, a violent lowlife whose only passions are pornography and darts, or the rich, honorable, and dimly romantic Guy Clinch. As Nicola leads her suitors towards the precipice, London -- and, indeed, the whole world -- seems to shamble after them in a corrosively funny novel of complexity and morality.

"A comic murder mystery, an apocalyptic satire, a scatological meditation on love and death and nuclear winter...by turns lyrical and obscene, colloquial and rhapsodic."--Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
