Novels (partially) set on the London Underground Railway

The Modern Novel home page » My Lists home page » Novels (partially) set on the London Underground Railway

This list was produced as a result of reading an article in The Guardian by John Lanchester, claiming a lack of novels featuring the London Underground (the aricle has since been removed from the web). A quick poke around the web found that there were a few. Note that these books, for the most part, only have a very small section which takes place on the Underground.
