Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Under the streets of London there's a place most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, knights in armour and pale girls in black velvet. This is the city of the people who have fallen between the cracks.
Richard Mayhew, a young businessman, is going to find out more than enough about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his workday existence and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and utterly bizarre. And a strange destiny awaits him down here, beneath his native city: neverwhere.
From Goodreads.

This was really good and as weird as Neil Gaiman's books often are. All the different factions in Neverwhere trying to get along or not and it seems some people have lived for centuries. Richard being an unlikely hero and Door looking for the killer of her family. Travelling through Neverwhere is interesting and I wouldn't mind reading more books set in this world.
