The Quick by Lauren Owen

You are about to discover the secrets of The Quick –

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

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

Peer & Press Reviews

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, Man Booker Prize-winning author

Energetically throwing together real history and gothic fantasy, Owen has produced a novel that is macabre, readable and atmospheric.

The Sunday Times

A suspenseful, gloriously atmospheric first novel, and a feast of gothic storytelling that is impossible to resist.

Kate Atkinson, Costa Novel Award-winning author
