Summary Matthew Pearl reopens one of literary history's greatest mysteries in his most enthralling novel yet, a tale filled with the dazzling twists and turns, the unerring period details, and the meticulous research that thrilled readers of bestsellers The Dante Club The Poe shadow. Boston, 1870. When news of Charles Dickens' untimely death reaches the office of his struggling American publisher, Field & Osgood, partner James Osgood sends this trusted clerk Daniel Sand to await Dickens' unfinished novel--The mystery of Edwin Drood. But when Daniel's body is discovered by the docks and the manuscript is nowhere to be found, Osgood must embark on a transatlantic quest to unearth the novel that will save his venerable business and reveal Daniel's killer.
