Q

 15.00

by Luther Blissett

It bracingly reanimates an era of frenzy that longed to burn the world clean ― The Guardian

The mud and blood, visions and ideals of 16th-century Europe come back to gruesome, glorious life ― The Independent

Big and bloody and breathtaking: a crush of colour and crowds, exotic locations and war. ― The Times

Imagine Umberto Eco’s knack for the swashbuckling thriller-of-ideas crossed with an artful touch of the Le Carr’s – it boasts pace, colour, excitement and suspense to spare- Q works like a charm as a sordid, splendid period romp. ― Independent

Q

Set in Reformation Europe, Q begins with Luther’s nailing of his 95 theses on the door of the cathedral church in Wittenberg. Q traces the adventures and conflicts of two central characters: an Anabaptist, a member of the most radical of the Protestant sects and the anarchists of the Reformation, and a Catholic spy and informer, on their thrilling journey across Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. The four young writers who shelter behind the pseudonym Luther Blissett have created a world of intrigue, violence and intense political and religious passion. Far from the traditional example of historical fiction, Q is the stuff of which cults are made.
