This book was a bit slow to get going but around page 100 it picked up. I read this book for my book group but we have yet to meet and discuss it. I definitely think it will lead to a great discussion. I knew little about Poe before this book and I enjoyed learning more about him. I had also never heard of Mary Rogers before so that was also an interesting murder case to learn about. If you enjoy nonfiction then I think you'll definitely enjoy this book as the blending of the two stories is excellent.
