Bestselling author Heather Graham began writing her Krewe of Hunters series in 2011, and Wicked Deeds is the 25th installment. The novels are paranormal/romantic thrillers. While the novels are quite well-written, the fact that three or four are released each year should be a clue that they aren’t going to end up being literary classics. However, the series is fun, and for those who like light, fast-moving thrillers, this will be a great series for them to follow.
Wicked Deeds begins with historian Vickie Preston and Special Agent Griffin Pryce stopping in Baltimore while on a short romantic vacation and getting mixed up in solving a murder that happened at an Edgar Allen Poe themed restaurant. Because the corpse has some strange circumstances surrounding it, the FBI's Krewe of Hunters paranormal team is called in to investigate. Since Griffin is already a member of the Krewe and close by, and Preston is scheduled to join the Krewe shortly, they stay in Baltimore.
Graham has done an excellent job of developing her characters, giving readers the impression that they might be real people. Preston has some interaction with Poe’s ghost during the investigation, and there is palpable building suspense as favorite characters are put in danger and more murders occur. Another plus is that Edgar Allen Poe fans will enjoy reviewing some of the facts from Poe’s life; it seems that Graham does do her research. Even though this is a fictional novel, the background has factual information woven through in which the characters interact, making the novel even more fun.
While Wicked Deeds can be read as a stand-alone novel, readers who enjoy this genre will want to start with the first installment and read them in order.
