I liked the idea behind My Clockwork Muse, particularly the police calling on Poe to help with their investigations because of his experience writing mystery novels and the copycat nature of the crimes. It began well and was one of the books I was most looking forward to reading in my queue.

In the novel, Poe suffers from somnambulism, a crazy cat and a talking raven, and soon finds evidence that he himself committed the crimes. He is even more confused when one of the victims turns up alive then undead, and another crime is based on a story yet to be published. Soon even the police can't be trusted.

Despite the flaws, it was an interesting read and once I began it I finished in two days, staying up much later than I had intended to. Now the story and characters are set up, the sequel shouldn't suffer from the same problem
