Among the rush-hour crowds and abandoned levels of the London Underground, someone is pushing women under trains. In his search for the killer, Casimir, a Tube worker, is led ever deeper into this city beneath the city. Below the bright crowds and tunnel musicians is a labyrinth of long-forgotten cross-passages, deep shelters and derelict Victorian stations. Hunting for clues that will lead him to the killer, Casimir is also drawn back into his own past and the terrible secrets of his Polish childhood. In subterranean London, Casimir has gone to ground. But in his desperate search he discovers a chance for forgiveness and the emergence of a new life. Underground is a compelling, intensely atmospheric first novel. It confirms Tobias Hill as an author who, in the words of the Observer, 'writes the kind of fiction that can change the way you look at the world'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Genuinely thrilling ... It is hard to overestimate Hill's descriptive powers. The Underground network is evoked so convincingly it delivers a considerable emotional punch, as if this Underground and its hideous crimes are telling us something uncomfortable about ourselves. * New Statesman *
Beautifully paced and genuinely exciting * Evening Standard *
Until now, no writer has succeeded in capturing the heady combination of menace and and gothic excitement that lurks under the surface of London ... Hill's precision is extraordinary and his ear for a range of dialects uncannily accurate * The Times *
Excellent ... The physical descriptions of the environment we all take for granted are stunning * Time Out *
Hill is fresh and exact in description, and creates a subterranean world that combines the quotidian with the wonderfully gothic. His Underground, dank with ground-water, is a place where dim lights gloam around corners and abandoned stations are frosted with stalactites ... Effectively written, genuinely exciting * Observer *
An engrossing, fast-paced thriller * The Times *
Hill is among the most noticeable talents of his generation * Independent on Sunday *
