Really enjoyed it, will have to read the rest of the series. I felt it was stronger in the beginning, where Crispin behaved in ways that are almost inexplicable by today’s standards( returning home when he clearly should have run) but, as the book progressed, he stated doing things that seemed unlikely for him(sneaking off). All in all though, held my interest

I've read several "Poe as detective" books but felt this one was better than most.
His character was in keeping, generally, with what is known of Poe, and yet the author managerd to make his involvement somewhat plausible.

All in all, an enjoyable read
