Matthew Pearl

Cambridge’s Matthew Pearl has combined literary mystery with historical fiction in such best-selling novels as The Dante Club and Poe’s Shadow. He recently released his fourth novel, The Technologists, a big, burly thrill ride of a book that takes readers back to 1860s Boston, where students in the inaugural class of MIT seek the cause behind a series of catastrophes in the city.
