Overview

Wicked Deeds (Krewe of Hunters Series #23) by Heather Graham

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…

I love the Kreme of Hunter's books that Ms. Graham writes. This one in particular was pretty awesome . The ghost of Poe, hidden walls, a gothic mansion . Excellent reading on a dark and stormy night.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It had more twists and turns than I could keep up with. One of Heather's best.

Vickie Preston and Griffin Pryce return in for a third time in this book, following their reacquaintance in Dying Breath and collaboration in Dark Rites. But while those two Krewe of Hunter books took place in Boston, Massachusetts, Wicked Deeds has our couple heading to the Washington D.C./northern Virginia area. (No spoilers for those who didn’t read the first two Vickie & Griffin stories; this can stand alone, but the preceding books are very good and set the stage, so to speak, for this one.) Stopping in Baltimore for the weekend, Vickie and Griffin are drawn into the investigation of a popular local author. Soon the “Krewe” is on the job, trying to discover who is committing murders echoing Poe’s literary works. The main reason I read this series by Ms.Graham is that I love the way the paranormal gets woven into the story and the “Krewe”s”mission. With the legend and ghost of Edgar Allan Poe lurking around, this book nerd and Poe fan loved that the plot revolved around Baltimore and Poe’s backstory. I truly did not mind the history lessons built into what was a decent and fairly well-written suspense book. I find that the writing in Ms. Graham’s books can be very uneven, but here it flowed fairly well. Although I normally like a different protagonist(s) in each book, this trilogy within the series worked for me and I was still very engaged in Vickie and Griffin’s story. Enjoyable read!

Ms. Graham's has brought yet another historical icon to life. The story of Mr Poe's writings intrigue me now. Thank you. A truly twisted tale.

This book started out slow...very slow. However I eventually got into it and was glad that I kept with it. Of course, I’ve heard of Poe, heard some of his poems, and can even imagine his profile. But, I had never read him. Alas, I learned a lot about him in this book as he appeared to Griffin and Vickie, the latter being a new member to the Krewe team. Poe appears to both of them in this story with Vickie being the main person he speaks to. A member of a group of Poe fans is found dead and that starts the mystery of this book. I enjoyed reading this book and stayed up late to discover “who did it”. However it doesn’t rank as my favorite from this author. Entertaining, but slow for me to start. Thanks to Harlequin, MIRA and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review

Wicked Deeds, like all the Krewe of Hunters books, is a delightful mix of lots of history and mystery combined with a dash of magic and romance. For the third time historian Vickie Preston and Special Agent Griffin Pryce gets to star a story as they run into a crime while taking a weekend off before their new life starts. I like Vickie and Griffin, they have a great chemistry, and they are perfect for each other. They compliment the other and have a tangible connection and fierce passion. To say I am bored with them would be wrong, I am not. But I do like the spark of a new romance igniting in the stories and the energy it brings to the tale. Vickie is always filled with stories from the past, her knowledge is beyond most. But what was the fun and intriguing part for me in the story was the appearance of Edgar Allen Poe as the ghost. I loved the characteristics the author had given him, so fitting. Most of us have wondered at one time or the other how it would be to meet someone from the past, and the way this story is told, it just tickled my mind immensely. The murder mystery gets intense. It is a tangled web of clues and suspects and like most of the Krewe stories, the past and present interweave with visions and dreams. This is a good, satisfying story and a wonderful addition to the series. It is not my favorite within the Krewe books, but it is a solid tale of history and mystery ~ Three Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
