But the murderee - Nicola Six - is searching for something and someone else: her murderer. She knows the time, she knows the place, she knows the motive, she knows the means. She just doesn't know the man. London Fields is a brilliant, funny and multi-layered novel. It is a book in which the narrator, Samson Young, enters the Black Cross, a thoroughly undesirable public house, and finds the main players of his drama assembled, just waiting to begin. It's a gift of a story from real life ...all Samson has to do is write it as it happens.Hide synopsis

If anyone was at doubt about Amis as a novelist of incredible talent, this book should quell their thoughts. Amis is a master of 'black humor' which I find thoroughtly entertaining. The story line, the titles he gives to his characters and that inside look into everyone's thoughts and their patterns is genious.
Nicola Six wants to take her dance with death her way as the murderee, meanwhile manipulating the 3 men involved in her scheme. However, only one man knows this and he becomes her murderer, and at last the choice is revealed.
A highly entertaining book, this lead to many more ie. Times Arrow , The InFormation,
Yellow Dog and most recently, The House of Meetings.
Also his exegesis found in every novel about space and time is very 'right' for Amis.
