Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter. Aged book. Please note this book is over 20 years old. It will therefore have tanned pages, age spots and plenty of shelf wear. However, for its age it is still very useable, and a great read.

Product description


"An imaginative, clever and satisfying literary detective story, bristling with the sights, smells and sounds of 19th century Baltimore - a real treat for Poe fans" (Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth)

"Pearl does an ingenious job of shedding new light on the puzzle...brilliantly evokes the kind of dedication that Poe still enjoys" (Alice Fordham The Times)

"An absorbing combination of cerebral twists and visceral turns" (Daily Mail)

"Genuinely thrilling... An unusually arresting piece of crime fiction" (Daily Telegraph)

"A mind-twisting literary thriller...With nefarious characters, a Machiavellian plot and a denouement monologue to wow even Hercule Poirot, The Poe Shadow will keep you guessing" (Daniel Steffans Time Out)

Book Description

'Matthew Pearl is the new shining star of literary fiction - an immensely gifted author' - Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code.
