Would You Run Into a Burning Building?

Candace "Canada Mac" MacHugh lives a ghost of her former life.

Once a proud Butte, Montana, miner who daily risked her life setting explosives, she's now a garbage collector in her dying hometown.

Her beloved father is dead and she doesn't speak with her mom.

Canada Mac is alone. Longing for the past. Dreaming of making a difference.

Until one night when her father's voice speaks to her from the shadows. The dead, it seems, have messages they hunger to share with the world--warnings of impending disasters and grave danger. Of cities doomed to burn.

But they need Canada's help.

Editorial Reviews
The Dead Whisper On is an excellent example of a 'page turner.' I found myself saying, 'Just one more chapter' so many times and ended up staying awake much later than expected. But that is okay. It was definitely worth losing a little sleep to be entertained with such a fast-paced and suspenseful novel.
—Leslie Granier
In a follow up to his splendid thriller debut, Waking Lazarus, T.L. Hines hits the ground running with his new supernatural thriller The Dead Whisper On, proving that he's not the taste of the month, but rather a proven writer who's here to stay. Blending elements of ancient mythology with tenets of faith, Hines has once again crafted a contemporary supernatural fantasy that will ensnare readers from the very beginning, and won't let them go until the final plot twist is unveiled.
—Kevin Lucia
T.L. Hines has returned with a vengeance with his second novel The Dead Whisper On.... a true nail biter from start to finish.
&3151;Michelle Steffy
The Dead Whisper On blows away most Christian supernatural thrillers. Following up last year's well-received Waking Lazarus, author T. L. Hines once again brings Koontz-like mystery and intrigue to Montana.... Once you start reading The Dead Whisper On, you won't want to stop. I highly recommend it.
—Randy Brandt
The Dead Whisper On is really very good. I know that, because when I picked it up the other morning (of course I read it in broad daylight as my mama didn't raise no fool), I didn't, couldn't put it down again until I'd finished the last page. I'd intended just to check it out, but the author hooked me with the first sentence-"A dead man spoke to her from the shadows."....

Tightly written and well paced, T. L. Hines is a gifted writer and surely on the way to a brilliant career. The Dead Whisper On is so visually haunting I feel like I saw the movie instead of read the book.

    A Must Read For All Suspense Lovers!

    It¿s been eleven years since Candace MacHugh¿s father died. Living in Butte, Montana with nothing but her memories, Canada feels alone, she misses her father so much and has no contact with her mother since she blames her mother for kicking her father out. Then one night she hears her father speak to her from the shadows wanting her to join him and the work the dead are doing attempting to make contact about dire warnings and great dangers. The dead want her to become an ¿operative¿, one of the contacts between the living and dead but to do so she must become ¿dead¿ to the world. Canada is so happy to hear her father¿s voice and gets caught up in the excitement of at least working with him and talking to him that she says yes without really thinking. And she is whisked away to her first assignment. But Canada doesn¿t seem to be fitting in at least to the ¿operatives¿ thinking. Her ¿death¿ is staged, her car flies off the road and flies into the Berkley pit the biggest Superfund site in the United States. Her father and the operatives tell her to watch out for Keros the golem who is out to get her but no one can tell her why. But the shadows and the operatives are afraid of him. Than Keros finally catches up with her and makes her realize he is not the bad guy and is not out to kill her which makes Canada begin to question as to what is really happening with the shadows or Nothingness as Keros calls them and the operatives. Keros tells her ¿The heart is deceitful above all things¿ and ¿What you see isn¿t always what¿s real. Often isn¿t, in fact.¿ Meanwhile people in Butte are disappearing, actually turning to ash and burning up. And Canada questions why the shadows and the operatives don¿t want her in Butte, for that is where the truth lies. Once Canada gets it all figured out that the shadowy figure is not her father and that the shadows are living underground in the mines in Butte waiting for their time to take over. Canada knows they must be stopped but how? Can she trust Doug, the computer geek operative who has figured out the truth, too but even if she can¿t she knows she needs his help. The author T.L. Hines will leave you spellbound in this awesome page turner that will have you on the edge of your seat. A must read for anyone who likes suspense for this one will leave you guessing as to what will happen next. And the author admits that Butte is his favorite city in Montana, and it shows as Hines goes into great detail describing the town. It really makes you feel you are there as you go to the Columbia Gardens see the Our Lady of the Rockies and to the Berkley Pit. And go on the run with Canada first trying to get away from Keros and later the operatives for you will feel you are there. As a Christian suspense it may leave some questioning about someone speaking to the dead but trust this reviewer there is a bigger story here. ¿The Dead Whisper On¿ is T.L. Hines second book the first being ¿Waking Lazarus¿ and on the surface both seem to be about the dead but as the author states ¿They¿re about living, and specifically living the life God has called you to¿. So whether you are a Christian or not this is a must read for all suspense lovers.

    A spooky tale

    Butte Montana garbage collector Candace ¿Canada¿ MacHugh hears a voice telling her to meet her at the Mint at 7:00 p.m. It is the voice of her father who has been dead for over a decade and like Houdini he told her if there was a way to contact her after death he would. After eleven years she almost gave up hope but even though she see him as a sort of vague shadow she recognizes his voice substantiated by his telling her something only they would know.----------------- He recruits her for Network of the Shadows whose agents save lives and warn people when danger is about to strike. She agrees to do this but her agreement wakes up the golem Keros who has to stop her. She goes to various locations around the country bringing attention to serial killers, a mall that is about to be blown up and finding a child during a tornado. However when Keros comes in contact with her he tells her something that destroys her world and sends her back to Butte where she fights the evil that has lived in the mine for a long time though she might be killed she is trying to save her town.----------------- Not everything is the way it seems in THE DEAD WHISPER ON. Readers will find immense pleasure in reading this book because the surprises come right after another thus there is no chance that boredom will set in. The protagonist is a brave and gutsy woman who is a natural leader which the inhabitants of her town need if they are to be saved. Her ability to accept the unexplainable and plan from there makes her someone to admire and leave readers rooting for her as she tries to throw out the garbage harming people.---------------- Harriet Klausner
