    Stashower wrote a book about the murder of Mary Rogers (Edgar Allan Poe's Marie Rogêt) which I thought was very good.

    He also wrote one of the top 2 Conan Doyle biographies imo Chris. His true crime book The Beautiful Cigar Girl is also very good.

      Yes - The Beautiful Cigar Girl was the one about Mary Rogers. I didn't know he had written a biography of Conan Doyle, though.

        Yes it’s a good one. Teller Of Tales. I just checked his bibliography and it reminded me that I’d also read The Hour Of Peril: The Secret Plot To Murder Lincoln Before The Civil War which is another excellent one.
