From New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers comes a spellbinding tale of suspense, romance and that most timeless of crimes: murder.
It was meant to be an adventure-a night alone on a remote Irish island. Archaeologist Sophie Malone never expected to find Celtic treasure or to end up in a fight for her life in a dark, desolate cave. Now, a year later, she’s convinced answers to the mysteries of that night lie in Boston. Is the recent violence there connected to her night of terror? Who has the priceless gold artifacts that disappeared from the cave…and who is responsible for the whispers she heard in the dark?
Nearly killed in an explosion a month ago, Boston detective Cyrus “Scoop” Wisdom has recovered from his injuries. He’s after the bomber-and he thinks it’s another cop. But when Sophie unknowingly leads him to a retired officer’s body amid symbols of ritual sacrifice, it’s clear nobody’s safe, and everyone’s a suspect.
Tough and stubborn, Scoop is the best on the force at detecting lies…except maybe those of Sophie Malone. Together Sophie and Scoop face the greatest challenge of their lives: someone is using ancient rituals to commit modern-day murder-and the killing has only just begun.

THE WHISPER BY CARLA NEGGERS is a delightful, adventurous, romantic suspense thriller set in modern day Ireland and America. It is well written with depth and details. It has a lot of information in reference to ancient Irish folklore, legend and artifacts. It is the sequal to The Mist. It has romance, suspense, ancient rituals, forklore, legend, lost artifacts, adventure, intrigue and some sweet sensuality. It is about a diabolical screme using ancient Irish rituals to gain power and success. The hero is an Internal Affair officer, who was wounded a few months earlier due to a bomb blast. He is strong, intelligent, a force to reckon with and travels to Ireland to recuperate. The heroine is an archeologist who is out to find the truth, she was left for dead in a cave in Ireland. These two meet in Ireland by accident and there is love at first sight. They go back to the USA to their jobs, where fate or fairies are at work and put the two together. They together with the help of others find the truth. The secondary characters are just as inspiring. We see romance and love come together between several of the characters. This is a fast paced, page turning story. A must read and a keeper. I would recommend this book, especially if you enjoy intrigue, suspense, myth and legends.
