Summary
Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, one of an elite group of literary geniuses secretly working on America's first translation of "The Divine Comedy" in 1865, puts his career on the line when he teams up with outcast police officer Nicholas Rey in an attempt to find a killer who is patterning his crimes on descriptions of Hell's punishments from Dante's "Inferno."
Summary
In 1865, the preparations of the Dante Club--led by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Oliver Wendell Holmes--to release the first translation of Dante's "The Divine Comedy" are threatened by a series of murders that re-create episodes from "Inferno."
