Edgar Allan Poe and the Murder of Mary Rogers by Daniel Stashower

Book Description

On July 28, 1841, the battered body of a woman was discovered in the Hudson River. The victim was Mary Rogers, a young beauty whose death sent Manhattan into a spasm of horror and outrage. It would also inspire one of the greatest authors of a generation to write "The Mystery of Marie Roget" and thereby create an entirely new style of literature - the true crime novel. This book retraces Edgar Allan Poe's steps as he sets out to solve the case, providing a tale of intrigue, suspense, and shattered reputations. Stashower reveals the drama of New York in the 1840s, complete with roving gangs, corrupt journalists, and an unregulated police force utterly unprepared for the baffling crime that transformed a city.
