The Whisperer opens with who little boys and their dog finding an arm buried in the woods and the police are called in. When the discover 5 more arms in shallow gaves next to them, the police are sure that they have found the 5 missing girls, all aged between 7 and 13 that have been kidnapped in the last few weeks. They are about to get down to business when one of the team unearths a sixth arm – but only 5 girls have been reported missing.

The investigating team draft in Mila Vasquez, an expert in finding missing children and Goran Gavila, a criminologist who helps to profile serial killers for the police. They set off to find their killer but are stumped at every turn when it appears that there is more than one killer at work.

I loved the paciness of this book; there were twists at every corner and just when the team thought they had got their man, they would be proved otherwise. There is some major suspension of disbelief required for this book, but then there is for most crime books – that’s what’s needed for a great page-turning plot. A quote on the front cover of the book asks the question “Is this the most eagerly awaited thriller in the world?” In my opinion, no, but I would still recommend as a damn good crime fic read if you like your twists and turns.
