Publisher's Summary

Homeless, hunted, and desperate to escape a bitter storm, Keira takes refuge in an abandoned groundskeeper's cottage. Her new home is tucked away at the edge of a cemetery, surrounded on all sides by gravestones: Some recent, some hundreds of years old, all suffering from neglect.

And in the darkness, she can hear the unquiet dead whispering.

The cemetery is alive with faint, spectral shapes, led by a woman who died before her time...and Keira, the only person who can see her, has become her new target. Determined to help put the ghost to rest, Keira digs into the spirit's past life with the help of unlikely new friends, and discovers a history of deception, ill-fated love, and murder.

But the past is not as simple as it seems, and Keira's time is running out. Tangled in a dangerous web, she has to find a way to free the spirit...even if it means offering her own life in return.

Awesome story

This book is awesome. The main character is multi faceted. I love the pastor and her conspiracy theorist friend. She’s funny. There’s lots of ghosts in this book and it’s NOT gory which is fine by me! Darcy Coats has always been one of my favorite authors. There’s Only one thing that bothered me and it’s that’s these people are in fact supposed to be Australian and the narrator is clearly American or Canadian?

Meh, okay, not my fave

I love Darcy Coates, a good haunted house mystery is my favorite time killer.

I didn’t care for her last series, so I was excited for this one.
My biggest complaint is that it’s called “The Whispering Dead” but dead are mute and make no noise. Silly complaint, I know, but.. they don’t whisper!
Anydangway, I thoroughly enjoyed the conspiracy theory friend and pastor. I’ll probably get the next one as long as it isn’t too out of the realm of possibility (shut up, I know it’s a ghost story).

Great new start

Enjoyable new series. Typical Darcy creepy cosiness. With no memory & being chased Keira finds refuge in a grounds keepers cottage. There she finds friends, a adorable cat & that she can see ghosts. While delving into a past murder Keira also discovers theres a evil she needs to more more worried about in the here & now.

Great quick story with great characters. A interesting setup, cant wait to get answers.
