Full Dark House

Read Full Dark House by Christopher Fowler, which wasn't as good as I'd hoped. I might persist though; and an earlier book of his, Roofworld, is one I'd noted a long time ago as one to read.

FDH was set in a well-researched wartime London, and had this interesting fact (on p31 of my library paperback): 'The first bomb to explode in London was not dropped by the Germans but planted by the IRA, and aimed at the most prosaic of targets - Whiteley's emporium in Bayswater.'
