‘The Quick’ is a powerhouse debut novel by Lauren Owen

‘The Quick’ by Lauren Owen is both plot- and character-driven, a stay-up-all-night-reading romp of more than 500 pages that you will desperately wish was double that. This is elegant, witty, force-of-nature writing about a London with evil secrets and a villain known as Dr. Knife that would give Stephen King nightmares.
