London Fields is Amis's murder story for the end of the millennium. The murderee is Nicola Six, a "black hole" of sex and self-loathing intent on orchestrating her own extinction. The murderer may be Keith Talent, a violent lowlife whose only passions are pornography and darts. Or is the killer the rich, honorable, and dimly romantic Guy Clinch?

"A comic murder mystery, an apocalyptic satire, a scatological meditation on love and death and nuclear winter...by turns lyrical and obscene, colloquial and rhapsodic."--Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

Brilliant writer but kind of pointless. The characters are so unreal, you stop caring what happens to them.

Not sure what to think about this novel. Yes, at times, it seems to be brilliantly writen; but, it goes on and on and on into every tawdry detail. I just could not bother to read it in its entirety and ended up skimming it to the end.
