Hatvary, George Egon,
The Murder of Edgar Allan Poe,
Carroll & Graf, New York, 1997.
When Chevalier Dupin, on an overcast day of October
1849, receives a letter informing him of Poe's death,
he leaves Paris and journeys to America in order to
put to rest his fear that his friend was murdered.
Rich in the depictions of nineteenth-century
America, The Murder of Edgar Allan Poe
quickly draws the reader into a mystery as
macabre and frightening as Poe's own work.
