Whisper the Dead by Stella Cameron
Review 4 Stars
On her way home from a book auction, pub owner Alex Duggins passes by a new development being erected. She sees a building trailer on fire and ends up saving the life of a man trying to break a door down. She becomes embroiled in his life, and in the mystery surrounding the fire where one man died. Shortly after that, another body is found. Much to the consternation of the local police - which is nothing new - Alex, and her friend and lover, veterinarian Tony Harrison, become entangled in this murder mystery.
Alex discovers that her present is tightly connected with her past. This fifth book in the delightful Alex Duggins Mystery series offers quite an enjoyable read with a surprising villain, along with other nicely connected plot twists, especially concerning Alex’s mother, Lily.
Many thanks to Severn House and NetGalley for the ARC for review.
