Sam North chronicles the lives of the hidden residents of London. The city has brought them together. The city could tear them apart.

The streets of London are swirling with them. They have no jobs, no driving licence, no social security, no identity of any sort. They pass us by every day; the unnumbered. Nio the dreamer has built a home for himself in Coldfall Woods. Mila the realist has just bought herself an identity, and works as a checkout girl. Together, Nio and Mila will take on this London and all it can throw at them. But the city is exacting.
