|About the Book|
Ever since Charles Dickens died in 1870 before he was able to finish his story, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, casual readers and scholars alike have speculated on the fate of the title character. In Dickens, Drood, and Redemption, author Ray Dubberke answers the question by surveying a host of famous murder cases as he retraces John Jaspers movements on the night of the crime. A connoisseur of detail and historical truth, Dubberke has a wonderful gift for melding his facts with Dickens fiction. The collection also includes an ancient retelling of the tale that will prove an amusing surprise for twenty-first century readers.
