"Magic, to a sailor, is harnessing the wind – getting something for nothing – the surprise of a gust, the boon of a side-wind and the trial of a headwind and best of all, the moment when a change in direction means turning away from the head seas and wind and running down the wind in a new warm silence." In 1969, man flew to the moon and sailed around the world solo. In 2009, sailor and Londoner Steffan Meyric Hughes thought he’d try something a little closer to home, becoming the first to sail and row around London in a small boat. Along the way, he discovers the truth behind boats, the sea and rivers, the history of the great city’s future and great secrets of the mysterious Thames: wrecks, bombs and intrigue. Circle Line is the story of a unique journey on the forgotten waterways of one of the world's greatest capitals; an investigation into the way we live today; and a humorous, sometimes moving trip down memory lane.

Beneath the streets of London lie the tunnels of the world's oldest underground railway. But there is more in the darkness than just train tracks. Amidst the densely packed bones of the ancient plague pits are other lines, pathways to another world where other men live amongst the strange beasts which have become part of our folklore. And these other men have magic. Led by a malevolent king atop a mysterious throne how long before these sorcerers reveal themselves? It's all just a matter of time. With the sudden death of his grandfather Sam finds himself as the new owner of the ghostly house where he grew up. But it is not long before Sam finds himself running for his life with allies from another world, persecuted for a power he doesn't even possess. Persuaded to stage the desperate rescue of a man who holds an unbelievable secret Sam's quest takes him to London and on to America and Russia. Soon the truth behind the most enduring myths and legends of men is revealed and, as Sam discovers, sometimes the truth is far scarier than fiction. If the past can be affected then who can tell what the future might hold? 'The Circle Line' is the spellbinding first part of 'The Complex Throne' series.

Ranging from the polemical to the fantastical, the personal to the societal, they offer something for every taste. All experience the city as a cultural phenomenon and notice its nature and its people. Read individually they're delightful small reads, pulled together they offer a particular portrait of a global city' Evening Standard 'Exquisitely diverse' The Times 'Eclectic and broad-minded ... beautifully designed' Tom Cox, Observer 'A fascinating collection with a wide range of styles and themes. The design qualities are excellent, as you might expect from Penguin with a consistent look and feel while allowing distinctive covers for each book. This is a very pleasing set of books' A Common Reader blog 'The contrasts and transitions between books are as stirring as the books themselves ... A multidimensional literary jigsaw' Londonist 'A series of short, sharp, city-based vignettes - some personal, some political and some pictorial ... each inimitable author finds that our city is complicated but ultimately connected, full of wit, and just the right amount of grit' Fabric Magazine 'A collection of beautiful books' Grazia [Praise for Lucy Wadham]: 'Penetrating insight and dry observation' Independent 'Beautifully clever and intellectually challenging' Good Housekeeping 'Effortless wit and keen intelligence' New Statesman Lucy Wadham was born in London and has lived in France for the past twenty years.

Cudahy begins with a history of the Circle Line and its forerunners and erstwhile competitors in the around-Manhattan sightseeing business. Next, he gives us the fascinating story of the fastest ocean linear of all time: the S.S. United States. The noble history of the New York Fire Department's fire boats is next, followed by the story of the Iron Steamboat Company's sidewheelers, which ferried passengers to the magical Coney Island from 1881 to 1932. Then there is the tragic 1932 explosion of the steamboat Observation, with its parallels to an earlier and even more devastating tragedy at nearly the same spot. Finally, Cudahy tells, in fascinating detail, of the New York-to-Bermuda cruises - as they were in yesteryear, and as they are today.
