The Ravens are members of a society dedicated to the reading and studying the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When one member of the society is murdered and another survives a serious auto accident, Genevieve O'Brien asks her friend, P.I. Joe Connolly, to investigate. Genevieve knows about horror and killing since she survived being held prisoner by a crazed killer. The newspapers refer to the case as the Poe Killings and Genevieve fears that her mother might be the next victim.

The story is a quick read and doubly entertaining with the author's play on words, telling a story that mirrors Poe's stories and weaving together a cast of interesting characters. There isn't much suspense but the story is well written and worth reading. ( )

Not great. Expected more from a Heather Graham book. Slow start. Uninteresting characters. ( )

Quoth the raven, “Nevermore!”
         —Edgar Allan Poe
To the New World School of the Arts, especially Ms. Graham, teacher of creative writing and English, who knows enthusiasm is the biggest part of the game; and Mr. Jim Randolph, “The God of Theater,” who keeps himself and his kids real, who knows there’s a big bad world out there but keeps a thumb on caring.

And for Beth Fath, a parent with quiet dedication; and Debbie Benitez, who has helped keep me sane and informed on more than one occasion!

Book description
Genevieve O'Brien knows all about nightmares. She survived for two months as the prisoner of a deranged killer. Now a new menace is stalking the streets of New York. The media is buzzing about the Poe Killings, a string of homicides mirroring the author's macabre stories. Almost without exception, the victims have been members of a literary society devoted to the master of crime fiction--and Genevieve's own mother may be next. Spooked by the bizarre slayings, Genevieve turns to PI Joe Connolly, her rescuer, her friend and...? She wants him to be much more, but he's been avoiding her since her ordeal, and she can't seem to get close to him. Joe isn't sure there even is a case. But as the body count rises and their investigation leads them miles from Manhattan, he has to admit that there's a twisted new serial killer at work. Even more unsettling is the guidance Joe is receiving from beyond the grave. People he knows to be dead--his cousin Matt and Matt's fiancé Leslie--are appearing to him, offering new clues and leads, and warning him of terrible danger ahead. But not even otherworldly intervention can keep Genevieve and Joe's new nightmare from becoming terrifyingly real--and putting them squarely in the crosshairs between this world and the next.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 077832625X, Mass Market Paperback)

The Poe Killings…

A string of homicides is mirroring the author's macabre stories.

And Genevieve O'Brien's mother is next.

Genevieve knows all about nightmares. She herself survived two months as a psychopath's prisoner. And now this new menace stalks the city. Spooked by the bizarre slayings, she turns to P.I. Joe Connolly, her past rescuer, friend and…hopefully something more, if he would just quit avoiding her.

At first Joe isn't even sure there is a case. But the body count rises, and it's clear that a twisted killer is on the loose. Even more unsettling is the guidance he starts receiving from beyond the grave. People he knows to be dead are appearing, offering him clues and leads, and warning of some terrible danger ahead.

But can even the spirits stay the hand of a madman bent on murder?
