Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Pearl's third historical novel explores the circumstances surrounding Charles Dickens's unfinished last work, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Boston publisher James Osgood eagerly awaits the final installments of Drood after hearing of Dickens's sudden death. Unfortunately, Osgood's trusted messenger, Daniel, is killed before he can deliver the manuscript to the publishing house, and the manuscript disappears. Could Osgood's publishing rivals have stolen it, or is there an even deeper mystery going on? Pearl enriches his story through extended flashbacks, the inclusion of actual historical figures, including Osgood himself, and an in-depth knowledge of Dickens's career and literary works. [Recommended for public libraries with popular Spanish-language fiction collections.—Ed.] [LJ 3/15/09]

Es interesante, admito me acerco y creo interes en la obra de Dickens. Sin embargo la narración y la trama es un tanto plana.
