About the Author
Karen Lee Street was born in America but has lived in London for most of her adult life. She recently moved to Australia. Edgar Allan Poe and the London Monster is her first novel.
"The terrific concluding volume of Street's Poe trilogy. Street fulfills the promise of the tantalizing opening with a twisty and nail-biting plot. Fans of other superior fictional treatments of Poe will be enthralled."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred)"
"In a brisk, vivid narrative that includes magic, alchemy, metempsychosis (the transfer of souls between bodies), and the pain of loss, Street details new life for Dupin, and for Poe, a reunion with his beloved. Superlative historical mystery, capturing the tone of the time and Poe's lasting literary legacy."-- "Booklist (starred)"
"A juicy gothic potboiler."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Edgar Allan Poe once again plays detective in Street's excellent sequel. Street enhances the Grand Guignol plot with a plausible and empathetic portrayal of her lead."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred) [praise for the Poe and Dupin Series]"
"Street excels at seamlessly joining history and fiction, displaying a literary style not unlike Poe's, complete with touches of the macabre and melodramatic."-- "Library Journal [praise for the Poe and Dupin Series]"
"Street's slightly self-deprecating and occasionally darkly humorous narrative echoes Poe's style and fashions him as the somewhat unwilling hero of his own story."-- "BookPage [praise for the Poe and Dupin Series]"
