The Quick by Lauren Owen

What a great read! A Gothic horror set in fin-de-siècle London. It took me a while to get hooked, initially, I wasn’t really sure about where the story was going and then it just went boom!I won’t ruin it for you, but the back cover does a great job of NOT revealing the main subject matter. It’s a book that I’d suggest you read when you’ve got big chunks of time – ideally in front of an open fire in a velvet smoking jacket to really set the scene –  it’s full of characters and places and if like me you read it in little bits, you’ll end up having to re-trace your steps.  The last 100 pages had my heart racing…..

8/10 …. tube stations have always made nervous…..
