really liked it
bookshelves: historical-mystery

I picked this up from one of my library's "best books of the year" displays and was very happy with it. It was fun to see a novel with Edgar Allan Poe as one of the characters. Agustus Landor, the investigator and narrator of the novel, was a pretty fascinating character, himself.

There's a pretty big twist at the end that seems to either completely piss people off, or they love it. I fall into the "loved it" category, as it's really difficult for a mystery novel to surprise me anymore.
