    You are not yet permitted, reader, to know the secrets of The Quick. For now, please make do with the following u You will travel to Victorian England, and there, in the wilds of Yorkshire, you will meet a brother and sister alone in the world, a pair bound by tragedy. You will, in time, enter the rooms of London's mysterious Aegolius Club u a society of the richest, most ambitious men in England. And at some point, we cannot say when, a trapdoor will open, the contours of reality will change, and the secrets of The Quick will reveal themselves. In her first novel, Lauren Owen has created an utterly beguiling fantastical world. As emotionally involving as it is suspenseful, The Quick will establish her as one of contemporary fiction's most dazzling talents, as early readers can already testify. 'A suspenseful, gloriously atmospheric first novel, and a feast of gothic storytelling that is impossible to resist.' Kate Atkinson '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.' u Hilary Mantel
