Publisher's Summary

Nevermore....

Eager to start their life together, historian Vickie Preston and Special Agent Griffin Pryce take a detour en route to their new home in Virginia and stop for a visit in Baltimore. But their romantic weekend is interrupted when a popular author is found dead in the basement of an Edgar Allan Poe-themed restaurant. Because of the mysterious circumstances surrounding the corpse, the FBI's Krewe of Hunters paranormal team is invited to investigate. As more bizarre deaths occur, Vickie and Griffin are drawn into a case that has disturbing echoes of Poe's great works, bringing the horrors of his fiction to life.

The restaurant is headquarters to scholars and fans, and any of them could be a merciless killer. Except there's also something reaching out from beyond the grave. The late, great Edgar Allan Poe himself is appearing to Vickie in dreams and visions with cryptic information about the murders. Unless they can uncover whose twisted mind is orchestrating the dramatic re-creations, Vickie and Griffin's future as a couple might never begin....

Another Enjoyable Read from Graham

I like these characters. My one suggestion, forget the New York accents. They make Griffin and Vicki sound dumb. Enjoyed the Poe twist.

A bit disappointing, but still an enjoyable read.

Admittedly, I was a little disappointed with this book. I was hoping that it would feature Alex (who was originally introduced in Dying Breath) and his lady love, as they played a big part in Dark Rites (particularly Alex, as he was the catalyst for the story). As Dark Rites was not focused on Alex's romance, I was hoping this book might go a bit further into it. Perhaps Alex's experience allowed him to see things that others usually don't (the dead). I was sad that none of this was the case. It is another book featuring Vickie and Griffin and their relationship. While I enjoy reading about them, I would love to hear someone else's story. This is the third book in a row that has been focused on Vickie and Griffin as the main crime fighting couple. While the appearance and help of couples and characters from previous books is rather commonplace in this series, this is the first time there have been multiple books with the same couple as the protagonists. Overall, I really enjoyed the story and thought it was well written and enthralling, but I would've liked to see another couple take the lead.

As always, Luke Daniels did a fantastic job in his narration. Any book he narrates is better simply for him being the narrator. He is one of my favorite narrators. I love that he has narrated the entirety of the Krewe of Hunters series (with the exception of The Silenced, The Forgotten, and The Hidden [books 15, 16 and 17, respectively], which were narrated by Phil Gigante [also an excellent narrator]).
