For Edgar

B-

In Sheldon Rusch’s grisly first novel, For Edgar, policewoman Elizabeth Taylor Hewitt is on the trail of a serial killer called the Raven who is committing murders patterned after those in Edgar Allan Poe’s stories. It’s a fast-paced little potboiler, but one wishes it actually contained more Poe-flavored creepiness. Between Hewitt’s rekindling of an old romantic relationship and her penchant for seeking comfort in cups of hot chocolate every 20 minutes, this often seems like nothing so much as a novelization of a Lifetime movie.
