Synopsis: This is a treat for readers who like their mysteries with a dash of wit and humor. At a hotel in Rome, a forum on unfinished works of music and literature has been convened to bring closure to Charles Dickens last and uncompleted novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Participants at the conference include such legendary detectives as Nero Wolfe, Father Brown, Jules Maigret, Hercule Poirot, Lew Archer, Philip Marlowe and, of course, Sherlock Holmes. Dickens’ story is read chapter by chapter, the sleuths deliberate, consult computers and mediums and suggest solutions more and more extravagant as the authors mix the complete text of Dickens’ novel, genuine literary scholarship and impressive knowledge of Rome, and both the mystery and science fiction genres to create a good-humored and offbeat satirical work that may or may not bring closure to Drood and/or Dickens.
