[Paranormal, Thriller, Suspense]
Murder was never something Zoe Delante enjoyed, but solving the cases.... She does that rather well, and has the track record to prove it. Yet when she's called in on a new case with the Baltimore PD as their go-to clairvoyant, she's unprepared for the heinous nature of the crimes.
The hunt for the murderer unfolds, dropping Zoe right in the middle of a power struggle between a nightmare of a coven, and a serial killer leaving bodies in ceremonial circles in the rural parts of Baltimore's city limits.
Will she discover the identity of the maniac behind the gruesome beheadings, or will she lose someone close to her first? A race against celestial bodies and the trail of earthbound body parts keeps our intrepid clairvoyant running right until the very end.

Zoe Delante is a heroine you can really root for. She's dark and sad and proud and fearless. I was fascinated by the insight into Wicca. I couldn't stop listening once I started.
I liked some parts. The dialogue is well done, flows smoothly. The story line is well thought out. The Wicca basis of the magic, though is overwrought and so earnest, it sets a jarring note. The police acceptance of the magic is not believable. And I just found many sections just too creepy and bloody, but then the magic healed every injury! Thriller + magic, in this book, just did not mesh well. I could not connect with our heroine, or care much about her, and the tacked on love interests were unlikely and unneeded.
I finished it because 1) didn't have another book to listen to and 2) just had to get it over with.
And the reader sounds like she had a cold, but maybe that is just me.
I honestly don't know. So many books, so little time. But I think I'd read it on my own next time. I think the character would play better there.
The ending. But here there be spoilers.
No I haven't
Yes, and I just about did. With every answer you get at least two more questions. It keeps you coming back for more.
Whispers of the Dead is very much plot driven and when paired with Zoe’s outstanding voice this story quickly becomes next to impossible to put down.
Robert-Huth’s descriptions are spellbinding without putting even the smallest damper on the endless action. You’re in for a wild ride. With a riveting narrative and a storyline that just doesn’t quit; this book is a must read for any and all paranormal fiction junkies
