Review & Giveaway: The Whisperers by John Connolly


Soldiers from the war in Iraq are committing suicide left and right. Charlie, a private investigator who used to work as an NYPD cop, is the one looking in on these deaths. He makes a startling discovery when he realizes that these soldiers may have killed themselves over an artifact they confiscated from a museum during their tour.

WOW! John really knows how to deliver! This is an amazing, quick read that leaves you breathless. I absolutely loved it.
