ABOUT THE BOOK
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…
WICKED DEEDS by Heather Graham is a thoroughly enjoyable mystery mixed with some historical figures and facts, and just a dash of romance added in to complete the mix.
Historian Vickie Preston and Special Agent Griffin Pryce are taking some much needed time out together as they are preparing for their new life together. On a stopover in Baltimore, they suddenly find themselves drawn into what appears to be the accidental death of a very famous author in the cellar of a popular new restaurant. But with the widow claiming it was murder, dead birds surrounding the victim, and the fact that nobody even saw the author enter the restaurant, Vickie and Griffin are more than curious. And then there are the dreams that Vickie keeps having where Edgar Allan Poe seems to be warning her...
Even though this is my first time reading the Krewe Hunter Series, I didn't feel lost or unsure of what was happening so it can easily be read as a standalone book. Although I must say I am definitely going to buy some of the previous books as I really enjoyed the pace of this novel, and the paranormal element really worked for me.
History is interwoven effortlessly throughout and you will find yourself fascinated by Mr. Poe and I found myself taking down a book of his from my shelf when I finished reading WICKED DEEDS.
With plenty of mystery, twists, and creepy occurrences, WICKED DEEDS by Heather Graham kept me interested from start to finish, and I read this novel in one sitting. Definitely, a must-read for paranormal fiction fans everywhere.
