Description
Boston, 1870. News of the untimely death of Charles Dickens reaches James Osgood at his American publisher, in this "Dickens of a mystery" (New York Daily News) by the author of The Dante Club and The Poe Shadow. Expecting the latest installment of The Mystery of Edwin Drood and suspicious of unscrupulous New York publishers keen to get their hands on the manuscript, Osgood sends his clerk, Daniel Sands, to await its arrival. When Daniel's body is found near the docks, Osgood himself embarks on a transatlantic quest that takes him from London's bustling West End theatres through grimy East End back streets and the fug of illicit opium dens, as the crime he hopes to solve ensnares him.

"A gripping read ... packed full of incident, coincidences, devious twists and dramatic set pieces."Daily Mail (London)
