9780099569978: The Quick

You are about to discover the secrets of The Quick –

But first, reader, you must travel to Victorian England, and there, in the wilds of Yorkshire, meet a brother and sister alone in the world, a pair bound by tragedy. You will, in time, enter the rooms of London’s mysterious Aegolius Club – a society of the richest, most powerful men in England. And at some point – we cannot say when – these worlds will collide.

It is then, and only then, that a new world emerges, a world of romance, adventure and the most delicious of horrors – and the secrets of The Quick are revealed.

'Sly and glittering' Hilary Mantel

'Impossible to resist' Kate Atkinson

Review:

"A sly and glittering addition to the literature of the macabre . . . As soon as you have breathed with relief, much worse horrors begin. It's a skilled, assured performance, and it's hard to believe it is a first novel." (HILARY MANTEL)

"A Gothic blockbuster." ( Independent)

"Energetically throwing together real history and gothic fantasy, Owen has produced a novel that is macabre, readable and atmospheric." (Nick Rennison Sunday Times)

"A suspenseful, gloriously atmospheric first novel, and a feast of gothic storytelling that is impossible to resist." (KATE ATKINSON)

"Debut gothic mystery from a new British talent." (Kate Figes Mail on Sunday)

Book Description:

A major debut adventure
