C. S. Poe: The Mystery of Nevermore C. S. Poe: The Mystery of Nevermore

It’s Christmas, and all antique dealer Sebastian Snow wants is for his business to make money and to save his floundering relationship with closeted CSU detective, Neil Millett. When Snow’s Antique Emporium is broken into and a heart is found under the floorboards, Sebastian can’t let the mystery rest.

He soon finds himself caught up in murder investigations that echo the macabre stories of Edgar Allan Poe. To make matters worse, Sebastian’s sleuthing is causing his relationship with Neil to crumble, while at the same time he’s falling hard for the lead detective on the case, Calvin Winter. Sebastian and Calvin must work together to unravel the mystery behind the killings, despite the mounting danger and sexual tension, before Sebastian becomes the next victim.

In the end, Sebastian only wants to get out of this mess alive, and live happily ever after with Calvin.

C. S. Poe: The Mystery of Nevermore

Úgy érzem magam, mint valami francos verkli. Felhúztak, aztán ugyanazt ismétlem: jó-jó, de semmi extra.
Van egy önjelölt detektívünk, aki először mint sértett vesz részt, majd mindenbe bele üti az orrát. Folyton olyanok után fut, akiknek coming out problémái vannak, ő utána meg olyan fut, akinek nagyon nem kéne. Van egy rendőr-nyomozónk is, aki csilli-villi, ex-katona az összes létező kitüntetéssel és ptsd-vel. Az egész egy nagy klisé.
A gyilkost rögtön fel lehetett ismerni, de azért ezek a Poe-s hivatkozások érdekesek voltak. A hangulata tetszik, jó a stílusa, a románc is cuki, de ennyi.

Having to explain to the dispatcher that I needed police not because of a dead body, but there was a body out there missing an essential part, was certainly the strangest thing I’d done in some time.

“People do stupid things sometimes, Seb.”
“I guess. It’s a little dramatic, though. ‘The Tell-Tale Heart.’”
“The what?”
“Poe,” I said. “It is the beating of his hideous heart!”
“Oh, yeah, I think I remember reading that in school,” Neil replied thoughtfully.
“An old man with a blind eye is murdered and cut up. The murderer thinks he hears the heart under the floorboards where he put the body,” I explained. “He goes mad with guilt while the police are there looking into a possible disturbance.”

“Someone has access to your shop’s security code,” Calvin said, ignoring the comment as he raised the bag up to stress his point. “You said only you had it.”
“Okay, I lied.”
“Who else knows it, Sebastian?”
“Neil and my dad. Oh, and the crazed Edgar Allan Poe killer, of course. Did I not mention that one?”
