The Man Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe by J. R. Rada
You might be thinking that Poe wasn’t murdered. He died in a hospital. You’re wrong.
While he did die at the Washington Medical Center, he was found delirious on the streets of Baltimore wearing clothes that were not his own. He was admitted to the hospital where he died without explaining what had happened. The only clue is he shouted the name “Reynolds” before he died.
The hospital and its records were later destroyed in a fire, so we’re left with theory and conjecture about how the Master of the Macabre died. One person knows how the Father of the Modern Mystery met his end, and that person is … The Man Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe.
This is his story, although it reads like one of Poe’s horror tales.
Alexander Reynolds has been known by many names in his long life, the most famous of which is Lazarus, the man raised from the dead by Christ. Matthew Cromwell is another resurrected being living an extended life. Eternal life has its cost, though, whether or not Alexander and Matthew want to pay it.
Alexander has already seen Matthew kill Edgar’s mother, and he is determined to keep the same fate from befalling Edgar.
From the time of Christ to the modern days of the Poe Toaster, The Man Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe is a sweeping novel of love, terror, and mystery that could have come from the imagination of Edgar Allan Poe himself.
