An Unpardonable Crime, by Andrew Taylor, copyright 2004; Theia Books, an imprint of Hyperion Books, 2004. This intriguing historical crime novel includes a young Edgar Allan Poe in a supporting role and a number of other, if less historical, interesting characters. Very good. Taylor has a number of other books that I will now seek out.
