9780754055099: Hawksmoor

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.

About the Author:

Derek Jacobi is a celebrated actor, having won a Tony Award for Much Ado About Nothing, and an Emmy award for Graham Greene's The Tenth Man. Jacobi is perhaps best known for his brilliant portrayal of the Emperor in the miniseries I Claudius.

From AudioFile:

This is a moody tale of ancient superstition and the modern havoc it spawns. There's no one better to read it than Sir Derek Jacobi, whose sepulchral voice seems to echo from the story's eighteenth-century beginning. Two hundred and fifty years ago, architect Nicholas Dyer designed devilry into the churches he built after the great fire of London. Now those churches are the sites of macabre murders; it's up to CID Detective Nicholas Hawksmoor to resolve this spooky and involving tale of evil-once-done. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
