Publisher's Summary

Peter Ackroyd's Hawksmoor was first published in 1985. Alternating between the eighteenth century, when Nicholas Dyer, assistant to Christopher Wren, builds seven London churches that house a terrible secret, and the 1980s, when London detective Nicholas Hawksmoor is investigating a series of gruesome murders on the sight of certain old churches, Hawksmoor is a brilliant tale of darkness and shadow.

interesting concept

Dark and mysterious, like nothing i've read before. The language captures an essense of London. However, the characters are so superficial, i felt apathetic for most of the book.<br/>Although a certain apathy fits well with the theme i prefer and will remember a book longer when i am more involved.
