"A murder at the Edgar Allan Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia, bears a close resemblance to one in a library in Trondheim, Norway. The corpse of the museum curator in Virgina is found--beheaded and flayed--in his office. The corpse of an archivist in Norway is found inside a locked vault in the library used to store the rarest and most delicate books in their collection."

"The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America, and a drama of almost unbearable acuity and power. It is a story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the enormous power of art."

But they might already be too late. The killers have retribution in mind, and one of them is heading straight toward a member of the Murder Squad, and his family. And that isn't even the worst of it. During the escape, the killers have stumbled upon the location of another notorious murderer, one thought gone for good but now prepared to join forces with them. Jack the Ripper is loose in London once more"
