As a child what can be more scary than waking up in the middle of the night and seeing a stranger in your room
As a parent what can be more scary than your child coming into your room saying there’s a stranger in her room
What could be more scary than checking the room and finding nothing, only for the child to go missing
Or you could be the Detective that’s sent a video of the missing child and are told you only have a few hours to find her before she dies.
Detective Jenna Alton is the detective who receives the video, and assembles her team the start the search
Too soon another message arrives from the kidnapper, and it’s not what Jenna wants to hear
That is just the start to a book which had me engrossed from start to finish.
The stories in this series are set in Black Rock Falls, a large sleepy town that is growing in size by the month
The small Police Department runs well with the main Detectives Jenna Alton and her Deputy David Kane investigating some serious crimes involving serial killers
The series is like Midsummer Murders on steroids, and as well as the main characters there are some great bit-part-players, the best of which is the local Medical Examiner who doubles up as the Police Departments CSI, he’s even recruited his daughters to help him
I’ve read all of this series, and I’m always richly anticipating the next. Whispers in the Night didn’t disappoint. It’s is fast paced, without being frantic. It’s gritty, without being gory. It is far from a cosy Crime drama, but illicit a cosy read
I really can’t wait till the next one comes out
