THE POE CONSEQUENCE:

2012 Supernatural Thriller of the Year award from Books-and-Authors.net

Kirkus 'Best Books of 2015' Year end issue

Book Excellence Award 2017 Finalist

Re-released through Black Opal Books in March of 2020

Premise:
After the drive-by shooting of an innocent bystander, the two gangs responsible for his murder start facing an Edgar Allan Poe inspired vow of revenge from beyond the grave.

"Steinbaum tells a story that intelligently and respectfully addresses issues of race and violence. A grounded urban tale that's enhanced but not dominated by touches of otherworldliness."
- Kirkus Reviews

"A satisfyingly engrossing tale that's hard to put down and packed with all the elements that contribute to a superior thriller."
-Diane Donova

But it's important to remember that fictional writing allows us to journey into our own minds away from our current realities, so I remind myself each time I write to appreciate the world I'm entering and developing that is all mine. This mind-set limits writer's block for me.(less)

“There will always be con artists, I know that,” Warren admitted. “But that doesn’t mean clairvoyance isn’t real.”
Keith Steinbaum

“He didn’t like the idea of leaving unfinished business behind. He had wanted definite answers about the heart attacks to be able to turn the page on who or what caused so many of his brothers to die.”
Keith Steinbaum, The Poe Consequence

“He tried to get drunk, “to forget about life for awhile,” as that old
Billy Joel song once said, but the scotch couldn't anesthetize his pain
and provide a retreat from the reality of his latest failures.”
Keith Steinbaum, The Poe Consequence
