William Hjortsberg is a unique and quirky writer, a little raunchy with a fine and subtle sense of humor. Nobody writes quite like him. This odd little ditty brings together Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini-- along with the befuddled ghost of Edgar Allan Poe, who cannot figure out what he's doing there-- to catch a gruesome killer who is borrowing Poe's literary methods of murder. The book is a bit of an edgy ride in places, bordering on uncomfortable, but it's a good read. As I said before: Hjortsberg is one of a kind.
