  • "El 9 de junio de 1865, mientras viajaba en tren a Londres con su amante secreta, Charles Dickens --que entonces contaba con 53 años y se hallaba en la cúspide de su carrera literaria-- se vio envuelto en un accidente ferroviario que cambió su vida para siempre. Dan Simmons narra esos últimos años de la vida de Dickens, dándole la voz al amigo y a la vez rival del gran escritor, Wilkie Collins. Explora en los enigmas que Dickens se llevó a la tumba y que aun hoy siguen sin respuesta, deteniéndose en los relacionados con su última e inconclusa obra: El misterio de Edwin Drood. De la mano de Collins, el lector descubre la oscura y doble vida que Dickens llevó tras el accidente, sus incursiones nocturnas en los peores tugurios de Londres y su creciente obsesión por la muerte.--Desde la descripción de la editorial."
