Summary
The residents of Pepys Road, London, a banker and his shopaholic wife, an old woman dying of a brain tumour, a family of Pakistani shop owners, the young football star from Senegal and his minder, all receive an anonymous postcard one day with a simple message: We Want What You Have. Who is behind it? What do they want? This novel is set in London during the late 2010s and the title refers both to London as the capital city of the United Kingdom, and to financial capital. All of the main characters have a connection to Pepys Road, a street in the south London suburb of Clapham. The book deals with multiple contemporary issues in British life including the financial crisis of 2007<U+0150>08, immigration, radical Islam, celebrity and property prices
