From the Publisher
Annotation THE BLACKEST BIRD is inspired by a real-life unsolved mystery from 19th-century New York. The victim is Mary Rogers, an alluring young woman, who worked as a clerk in a tobacco shop frequented by literary luminaries such as James Fenimore Cooper, Washington Irving, and Edgar Allen Poe. When her mutilated corpse is discovered, the investigator becomes particularly suspicious of the notoriously macabre Poe.
Editors Note During the summer of 1841, High Constable John Hays, New York City's first detective, finds himself investigating a series of brutal crimes, including the rape and murder of Mary Rogers, a young clerk at a Manhattan tobacco shop; the bludgeoning death of his publisher by John Colt, heir to the firearms fortune; and Irish gang leader Tommy Coleman, accused of killing his daughter, wife, and his wife's former lover.
