In Entombed, Alexandra Cooper investigates two cases that seem to have a mysterious link: a series of rapes in an upscale New York neighborhood and a skeleton buried in a Greenwich Village brownstone. The brownstone is the 19th century house where Edgar Allan Poe once lived. When New York University decides to demolish it, workmen find a human skeleton entombed - standing - behind a brick wall. These are the bones of a young woman who died in the last twenty-five years. Who is this woman whose killer seems to have taken a page out of one of Poe's classic stories of premature burial?
