The Whisper Man by Alex North

Clear rating
I read a number of positive reviews for this book, so being a mystery lover I gave it a go.
Overall, the mystery itself is pretty decent. It's something of a slow-burn, so if you're expecting mayhem in the first chapter, this is not the book for you.

Oh this is just a fun read, plain and simple.

As one who loves some genre-smashing, I heartily enjoyed Harris' mix of fantasy, western, and dystopian storytelling. Gunnie Rose is a hard girl in the hard life of a hired gun, and she's damn good at what

Jules Verne
“The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite. ”
