really liked it

My first real trip into the world of crime literature, the Dante Club is about a number of classic, real life American authors, in their goal to translate Dantes Inferno to english. But when someone starts brutally killing off people in their hometown of Boston, and in a way that seems curiously like the book they are translating, they have to do what they can to stop the murderer, least he give the book a bad name! Even worse, who could know about, or read Dantes Inferno given that it's written in Italian? Obviously someone learned. Maybe one of their own.

A rather easy read with some rather grissly scenes, I found that it kicked along from chapter to chapter in a snappy manner. Good pace, plot and characterization. A cool read.
