Akroyd’s 1985 Whitbread Award-winning novel followers architect and debaser Nicholas Dyer, who is loosely based on the famous 17th century architect Nicholas Hawksmoor. Dyer's satanic and murderous life—which is narrated in the 17th century language and diary style of Samuel Pepys—is juxtaposed with a modern day criminal investigation led by a detective named, Nicholas Hawksmoor.
The detective is looking for a serial killer who is leaving dead bodies at the site of the churches built by Dyer, and his obsession with tracking the killer leads the detective to begin to become mentally unhinged. It’s a macabre and post-modern read involving human sacrifice and occult rituals, and an interesting novel to kick off a book club with.
In the style of the novel, Jones tweeted, “Just want to thank all my followers (satanists & snake talkers,) who are part of the “book club,” (shadow government.) Don’t forget that the deadline for finishing Hawksmoor, (overthrowing the festering cabal that rules the world,) is Feb 1, (Feb 29,) 2018, (1693.).”
