1830. Retired New York City detective Gus Landor is living a quiet life when Superintendent Thayer summons him to West Point to investigate the hanging and subsequent mutilation of a cadet. Edgar Allan Poe, also a cadet, aids Landor by serving as an inside source into the closed world of the academy, though Poe's personal involvement with a suspect's sister complicates their work. But the pair find themselves helpless to prevent further outrages, and the removal of the victims' hearts suggests that a satanic cult might be at work. Some descriptions of violence.
