Title: Wicked Deeds (Krewe of Hunters #23)
Author: Heather Graham
Stars: 3 1/2 out of 5
I struggled though this book and yest I finished it there was something lacking. I wasn't able to connect to the endless characters as well as the ghost story. I love reading Edgar Allan Poe but something didn't quite connect.
Heather Graham uses a lot of Poe type of writing creating misdirection that the detectives follow. The story has history that will consume readers as the author gives readers another idea of what might have happened to Poe.
The story does pose most paranormal with a mystery but I found the it just lacking something. The story and chacaters didn't connect and many times the story would slow down only to rush though other parts that could have used a little more time and understanding.
This is considered a Stand Alone but honestly I was lost several times between the different characters to why the characters reacted certain ways.

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.
