Summary

It's Halloween, and life is grim for twenty-three-year-old Dimitri Petrov. It's the one-year anniversary of his parents' deaths, he's stuck on page one thousand of his Rasputin zombie novel, and he makes his living writing obituaries. But things turn from bleak to terrifying when Dimitri is assigned to cover a séance at the reputedly haunted Aspinwall Mansion. There, Dimitri meets Lisa, a punk-rock drummer he falls hard for. But just as he's about to ask her out, he unwittingly unleashes malevolent forces, throwing him into a deadly mystery. He wakes up in the morgue - icy cold and haunted by a cryptic warning given by a tantalizing female spirit. As town residents begin to turn up gruesomely murdered, Dimitri must unravel the connections among his family, the Aspinwall Mansion, and the secrets held in a pair of crumbling antiquarian books. If he doesn't, it's quite possible Lisa will be the next victim.

Not finished - but need to write this!

I'm not even finished with this story, but need to write a review because it's so freaking awesome! The story is an edge-of-your-seat kind of thing. I love the twists and turns. However, the Luke Daniels is rockin' his role as reader! Not every book works to have a voice-driven and enthusiastic reader, but Poe is a perfect fit. At one moment, you are laughing, the next, consumed in an intimate moment - all enhanced by a perfect fit reader. What a rush!

Humor, Horror and Suspence

What made the experience of listening to Poe the most enjoyable?

The combination of Humor and Horror. It was like Stephen King and Robert Crias had a love child. Elvis Cole visits Derry Maine. I just loved it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Poe?

The séance at the haunted Aspinwall Mansion and the scene with Lisa playing the drums for Demitri.

Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

I liked his Russian accent, so I'd have to say Poe or Rasputin.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Nothing is every normal
