The Poe Consequence

Full Description


After a botched drive-by shooting culminates in the killing of Warren Palmer, an English professor with a strong affinity for Edgar Allan Poe, the two murderous street gangs responsible for his death, The Alvarado Street Diablos and the North Rampart Lobos, start dying one by one in a unique and unexplainable manner – commencing with the gang member who pulled the trigger. Bizarre physical indicators link each death to the next – multiple rodent scratches over the face and body, a bluish hue over one enlarged eye, and, of course, the shocking condition of the heart. Captain Sherman Dean and Lieutenant Carl Atkinson of the LAPD, experienced veterans of crime scenes, are both at a loss for answers, as none of the usual and usable clues such as weapons, fingerprints, or signs of struggle have been found. Yet the emerging discovery of the consistent 4 a.m. time-of-death pattern convince them that they’re contending with the work of an unprecedented type of serial killer.
When L.A. Times reporter Kevin Palmer, Warren’s brother, is first informed of Warren’s death, he blames himself and succumbs to destructive behavior he battled to overcome in the past, sending him reeling on a downward spiral towards possible ruin at a time when he’s needed most by Warren’s son, Seth, who is now living with him. Kevin’s self-loathing is worsened by his awareness of Seth’s bitter resentment towards him, further complicating his emotional undoing and ruinous attempts at coping. And Seth’s newborn hatred towards Latinos foments further problems in his own relationships and conduct at school, exacerbating the friction between them.
In the midst of Kevin’s personal struggles, his hope for finding Warren’s killer and bringing him to justice continue to drive his interest in the Lobos and Diablos, leading to his discovery of the startling facts resulting from each autopsy. He, too, is at a loss to explain the findings until a fateful encounter occurs in New Orleans with the psychic who foresaw Warren’s death – and vengeful afterlife. Despite his initial skepticism of her extraordinary prophecies, what he learns and comes to believe leads him to question his own sanity and causes a complete reevaluation of life and death as he’d always assumed it to be. He returns to Los Angeles with information that would require a seemingly impossible set of circumstances to occur involving the aid of Seth, who not only is the one person with the power to stop the killer, but as fate turns out, the only one who can save the life of Alejandro, a Latino gang member – and brother of the woman Kevin loves. What Kevin is unaware of, however, is a secret that Alejandro shared with Seth and that Seth has sworn never to divulge – a secret that will cause, unbeknownst to Seth, the certain death of Alejandro, and, consequently, prevent the saving of Warren’s eternal soul.
