9780060155032: Hawksmoor

W osiemnastowiecznym Londynie architekt Nicholas Dyer zajmuje sie budowa kosciolów. W odróznieniu od swego kolegi, Christophera Wrena, przesiaknietego naukowym optymizmem epoki rozumu, Dyer ma obsesje wnikania w mroczne aspekty ludzkiej natury, co determinuje jego zycie i prace. Jego dwudziestowieczne alter ego, detektyw Scotland Yardu nazwiskiem Hawksmoor, prowadzi sledztwo w sprawie serii morderstw, dokonanych na kilku budowlach kosciolów. Tak samo jak niegdys Dyera, drecza go watpliwosci, w nastepstwie czego znajdzie sie na krawedzi utraty zmyslów.

Two hundred and fifty years later in the vast, sprawling metropolis of London the legacy of the past lives on, as CID Detective Nicholas Hawksmoor investigates a series of macabre murders that have occurred on the sites of certain eighteenth century churches in the city...

"Brilliant...Ackroyd gives a virtuoso display of his talent for catching not just the tone of voice but also the cast of mind of long dead men, and linking it to our modern world imaginatively"
