Hawksmoor - Peter Ackroyd A structurally complicated historical novel despite being only 217 pp. Nicholas Dyer, early 18th century architect, practitioner of the dark arts and murderer reaches out through time to modern London creating "Terrour" leaving corpses at the sites of the churches he designed. Time is particularly out of joint and the "shaddowes" of the fear and irrationality he believes to be stronger than sense and reason make themselves felt. In its own quirky and studied way this is a very scary novel.
