In 1865, the preparations of the Dante Club--whose members include Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, 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 the Inferno. Reprint.
The Dante Club includes such scholars and intellectual luminaries of mid-19th-century Boston as Longfellow, Holmes, and Lowell. Their attempt to introduce Dante's DIVINE COMEDY to the Harvard curriculum leads to a series of murders based on the grisly deaths in Dante's INFERNO. And it's up to the Dante Club to find the killers.
