Sarah Broadhurst's view...

It’s 1865 and a group of famous scholarly friends have formed a club to bring Dante’s Divine Comedy to America for the first time. But whilst they work on their plans a killer is already introducing the Inferno to innocent victims on the streets of Boston and the friends must find the killer before hell really does break loose. A glorious historical thriller, as rich in wonderful detail as it is in excitement which perfectly unravels Dante (particularly for those who have fallen for Dan Brown’s Inferno).

If you like Matthew Pearl you might also like to read books by Susanna Clarke, Jed Rubenfeld and Dan Brown.
