Historical thiller set in 19th-century London, about the ghost of John Polidori, one-time physician to the poet Lord Byron.
• HarperCollins’ site has this description with a preview function.
• Gary K. Wolfe reviewed it in the February 2012 issue of Locus Magazine: Hide Me Among the Graves is not merely a sequel to The Stress of Her Regard, and that novel is no way a prerequisite to enjoying it. In the decades since Stress appeared – with novels such as Last Call or Declare – Powers has notably refined his novelistic skills. His set pieces are no less spectacular and his plotting no less kinetic, but the prose is more measured and less overripe than in those earlier works, the characters more complex and conflicted, the action more tightly focused. … [T]his is his best novel in years”.
