Sometimes it's obvious when an author is having fun with a particular story. Such is the case with "The Death Dealer" by Heather Graham.

The Ravens are members of a society dedicated to reading and studying the works of Edgar Allen Poe. 

When one member of the group 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.

To add fun to the story, the author uses phrases and titles from Poe's works as she takes us through the story. At one point, a psychic tells of her image of the auto accident and concludes that besides the image, a word came to her, "nevermore."

Joe works the case and gets help from a number of people who have died, including his cousin and his cousin's fiance.

The story is a quick read and doubly entertaining with the story and the author's play on words, telling a story where the killer makes his crimes mirror Poe's work.

The characters are interesting and the story is well written.
