In 1865 Boston, the Dante Club, a small group of literary geniuses that includes Oliver Wendell Holmes and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, prepares the finishing touches on America's first translation of The Divine Comedy. Their plans come to a screeching halt when a series of murders erupt in a style and form stolen directly from Inferno and its singular account of Hell's punishments. With the police baffled, lives endangered, and Dante's literary future at stake, the Dante Club must shed its sheltered literary existence and find the killer.

display_description The title refers to an actual group of 19th-century Bostonians who gathered to translate Dante's Inferno for an American audience. Among the members of this exclusive "club" were poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, physician Oliver Wendell Holmes, and poet James Russell Lowell. While poring over the poem, the men find themselves on the trail of a serial killer who tortures his victims in ways that seem to be taken straight out of the pages of Inferno. The police are at a loss and must rely on the club members' unique knowledge of Dante's work to help catch the killer.
