It means the novel "based" on a city. The use of "set" is purposeful as the story of the novel always has a set or plot, just like the set of a film.

Novel is separate from the word set,
Set is a modifier in this sentence, meaning that the plot of the novel is occurs in the city I know well.
The sentence means, that "If the author of the book does not reveal that he knows well the city, he is describing in the novel, I am not going to take seriously this author and his book."

Please, give me kudos, if you like my explanation. :)
