Product description

Review

Chillingly brilliant . . . sinister and stunningly well executed (Independent on Sunday)

Extraordinary, amazing, vivid, convincing. [Ackroyd's] view of life questions the role not just of the novel but of art and history, memory, time and much else (Financial Times)

A novel remarkable for [its] power, ingenuity and subtlety (London Review of Books)

From the Back Cover

With a new introduction by Will Self

Winner of the Whitbread Book Award and Guardian Fiction Prize in 1985

'There is no Light without Darknesse
and no Substance without Shaddowe'

So proclaims Nicholas Dyer, assistant to Sir Christopher Wren and the man with a commission to build seven London churches to stand as beacons of the enlightenment. But Dyer plans to conceal a dark secret at the heart of each church - to create a forbidding architecture that will survive for eternity. Two hundred and fifty years later, London detective Nicholas Hawksmoor is investigating a series of gruesome murders on the sites of certain eighteenth-century churches - crimes that make no sense to the modern mind . . .

'Chillingly brilliant . . . sinister and stunningly well executed' Independent on Sunday

'Grips the imagination like an obsession' Guardian

'Extraordinary, amazing, vivid, convincing. Ackroyd's view of life questions the role not just of the novel but of art and history, memory, time and much else.' Financial Times
