Captivating and suspenseful
am 22. August 2009
A few words for classification: This is the third David Hunter novel by S. Beckett. I liked the first one a lot - very suspenseful, unexspected twists and introducing a very likeable protagonist. The second one was less thrilling, more contrived and the twists a little less unexspected. Whispers of the Dead achieves the same quality as the first one.
The protagonist - David Hunter - struggels with getting back to his old job and tries to do so by leaving London for a while and going to the "Body Farm" in the USA. Shortly after his arrival he is pulled into a murder investigation by a friend and colleague. But this investigation is not an easy one to solve - he isn't an officially registered expert in the States, he doesn't trust his instincts anymore, still doesn't know whether he wants to pursue his career and the murder seems to know a lot about how the police/TBI and his colleagues are approaching their work. These problems not only make this story captivating, suspenseful and thrilling but more realistic.
It is a great read and I can only recommend it!
