Within her ordinary city lurks extraordinary magic.

Magical poisons. Magical spies. A tower of magic that hides in plain sight. All part of a brutal underworld that programmer Dorelai Trelton stumbles onto, and if she fails to quickly figure out how to escape the danger she's in, she'll soon be dead.

Dorelai Trelton desperately wants to escape the relentless bad luck that hounds her. The software company she works for is on a death spiral to layoffs, her boyfriend stalks her, and now someone has secretly dosed her with a magical poison called "nightmare dust." Unfortunately, her poisoning makes it possible for her to see every hidden magical secret within her city. Secrets that others will hurt her for ... even kill her for ... if the nightmare dust fails to kill her first.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author's ultimate edition of his wildly successful first novel featuring his "preferred text"—and including his special Neverwhere tale "How the Marquis Got His Coat Back"

Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman's darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. Over the years, a number of versions were produced both in the U.S. and the U.K. Now Gaiman's preferred edition of his classic novel reconciles these works and reinstates a number of scenes cut from the original published books.

Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he discovers a girl bleeding on the sidewalk. He stops to help her—an act of kindness that plunges him into a world he never dreamed existed.

Slipping through the cracks of reality, Richard lands in the Neverwhere—a London of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth. The Neverwhere is home to Door, the mysterious girl Richard helped in the London Above. Door, a noblewoman whose family has been murdered, is on a quest to find the agent that slaughtered her family and thwart the destruction of this underworld kingdom. If Richard is ever to return to his former life, he must join the journey to save Door's world—and find a way to survive.

A hallucinatory fantasia of mystery, mythology, and terror that "draws equally from George Lucas, Monty Python, Doctor Who, and John Milton" (USA Today), Neverwhere is an "Alice in Wonderland with a punk edge" (Poppy Z. Brite), "that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares" (San Diego Union-Tribune).
