I have just read Thrones, Dominations by Dorothy Sayers, completed by Jill Paten West.Quite a lot of the story was set in Hampton, although the geography may be a bit iffy !!

I have always tried to read fiction related to my location, easier when on holiday, but this is my first Hampton read.

Does anyone else know of novels or short stories set in Hampton ?
