A wildly entertaining story of occultism, the churches of London, police procedures and how time isn't as straightforward as you might think.
‘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.
