Listen to an audio of Drood by Dan Simmons Little, Brown and Company, (February 9, 2009)
From the publisher: "On June 9, 1865, while traveling by train to London with his secret mistress, 53-year-old Charles Dickens--at the height of his powers and popularity, the most famous and successful novelist in the world and perhaps in the history of the world--hurtled into a disaster that changed his life forever.
Did Dickens begin living a dark double life after the accident? Were his nightly forays into the worst slums of London and his deepening obsession with corpses, crypts, murder, opium dens, the use of lime pits to dissolve bodies, and a hidden subterranean London mere research . . . or something more terrifying?"

Hi Catherine

I bought the book, but of course haven't had a chance to read it yet!

Simmons is an excellent writer so I'm quite anxious to get to it.

Good to hear from you!
