When the body of a suicide victim disappears at West Point Military Academy in 1831, only to be discovered hours later missing its heart, the Academy calls on retired detective Gus Landor to investigate. Landor is something of a legend among his peers, noted for an uncanny, Holmesian ability to read people. When Edgar Allan Poe, a new cadet, comes forth with his own cryptic conclusion - that the man Landor is looking for is a poet - Landor is intrigued and enlists Poe as his assistant. Working together, Landor and Poe narrow down the suspects, all the while dealing with their own personal demons.

Wonderful novel with excellent narration
Stick With It
Young Edgar Allen Poe. And the mystery. The ending.
It was not like any other book I have read. And I read A LOT.
I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me and by the end, I really had gotten used to his style and thought it was appropriate for the book. I think it was probably a pretty difficult book to narrate.
No. But I did enjoy the end. And it made me want to read up on Poe's early life. Also look at pictures to find out if his forehead really WAS so large.
This book took me two tries. The first time I started to listen, I abandoned it after about an hour. Then I went back to it at a later time and got interested and enjoyed it very much. It was different than I thought it was going to be. But not in a bad way.
