Writings on the metropolis generally foreground illimitability, stressing thereby that the urban ultimately remains both illegible and unintelligible. Instead, the purpose of this interdisciplinary study is to demonstrate that mentality as a tool offers orientation in the urban realm. Nora Pleßke develops a model of urban mentality to be employed for cities worldwide. Against the background of the Spatial Turn, she identifies dominant urban-specific structures of London mentality in contemporary London novels, such as Monica Ali's »Brick Lane«, J.G. Ballard's »Millennium People«, Nick Hornby's »A Long Way Down«, and Ian McEwan's »Saturday«.
Harry Jones has lost everything, his seat at parliament and his fortune, but he still has Jemma. Focusing on the one thing he has left, he proposes, and his life finally seems to be coming together again. But this exciting new phase in his life opens a Pandora's Box of chaos that belongs firmly in the past. As Harry is forced to confront unanswered questions about his father, who died ten years ago leaving him his fortune, he becomes obsessed with discovering the truth. The investigation travels from arson in Bermuda to a graveyard in Patras, from the High Table at his father's old Oxford College to a pornographer's den. Does Harry know when to stop, or will he end up making himself judge, jury and executioner of those he holds responsible. It is only at the end of his journey that he comes to realise he is merely a pawn in a much larger game...
A missile tears a passenger plane from the skies over London. Everyone on board is killed, including thirty-seven special children. As terror turns to international chaos, can the government survive...? Who would have killed them? And why?

Yet every lead he pursues finds its way back to the secret corners of Brussels and a British woman named Patricia Vaine. She and Harry are doomed to fight their battle to the death. Their own lives, and the future of an entire continent, are at stake in what develops into the greatest political power game since the end of the Second World War. For this is a plot not just to take over one country but the whole of Europe. And in this deadly game, the victors will claim total victory - unless Harry Jones can stop them...
