About the book:

As part of his regular street performance, a deception specialist who goes by the name The Raven picks his audience's pockets while they watch. It's harmless fun--until he decides to keep the spare wallet a city councilman doesn't seem to miss, hoping for a few extra bucks. When he finds not money but compromising photos of the councilman and his "personal assistants," The Raven hatches a plan to blackmail the man. However, he quickly finds himself in over his head with the Ukrainian Mafia and mired in a life-threatening plot code-named, "Nevermore."

Private investigators Trudi Coffey and Samuel Hill must scramble to sort out the clues--and their complicated feelings for each other--to rescue The Raven and save hundreds of lives from a wildcard bent on revenge.

Mike Nappa snags readers from the first page of this fast-paced thriller--and he never lets go until the end.

Why I want to read this book:

The first book, Annabel Lee, was SO good and I am excited to continue the series :D Plus, look at that cover. It's so creepy!!

  1. I think I may have to pick this one up because of all the Poe/Raven references alone. Sounds like a wonderful plot so thanks for putting it on my radar.

  2. The cover is definitely creepy! It sounds like an edge-of-your-seat kind of read!
