‘I imagine the revenge scenario in a different light, and see before me the bright luminescence of a woman. All I have to do is figure out who.’
Why did Joyce Beecham die in hospital when only hours earlier she was happily preparing lunch at home? As lead investigator for her newly-formed business ‘Watts Happening? Investigations’, Olivia Watts is engaged by legal acquaintance Alexander Beecham to investigate his mother’s suspicious death. Olivia uncovers heated sibling rivalry; a hidden marriage and disturbing financial transactions.
While shaking family skeletons, she meets eccentric inventor, Lord Bennington, who admits close ties to the Beecham family. Olivia later learns of an estranged niece and quickly elevates her to prime suspect. Seeking assistance from former supervising officer and on/off boyfriend DCI Stafford, Olivia must sidestep complex personality conflicts of a family at war if she is to uncover the truth behind the matriarch’s death.
Whisper of Death is a fast-paced crime novel that delves deep into heart of the Beecham family and its complicated family dynamic. This book will appeal to fans of intense thrillers by the likes of John Grisham, James Patterson and Lee Child. Much like Turner’s first novel, Beyond All Doubt, Whisper of Death guarantees a dramatic climax.
