A gripping literary thriller and smash bestseller that has taken Italy, France, Germany and the UK by storm.Six severed arms are discovered, arranged in a mysterious circle and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and eighteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. Worse still, the girls' bodies, alive or dead, are nowhere to be found.Lead investigators Mila Vasquez, a celebrated profiler, and Goran Gavila, an eerily prescient criminologist, dive into the case. They're confident they've got the right suspect in their sights until they discover no link between him and any of the kidnappings except the first. The evidence in the case of the second missing child points in a vastly different direction, creating more questions than it answers.Vasquez and Gavila begin to wonder if they've been brought in to take the fall in a near-hopeless case. Is it all coincidence? Or is a copycat criminal at work? Obsessed with a case that becomes more tangled and intense as they unravel the layers of evil, Gavila and Vasquez find that their lives are increasingly in each other's hands.THE WHISPERER, as sensational a bestseller in Europe as the Stieg Larsson novels, is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent thriller that is also utterly unputdownable.

I have been thinking about how to start this review, but words seem to be failing me. So I will start with a few words that sum this up for me: Riveting, Enthralling and Incredible. Yes it was that good!I was hooked from the get go and I found myself thinking about this book everywhere I went, I eve...
Aw Snap and Oh my good god...I loved this book. For those who love the twisted writings of authors such as James Thompson, Val McDermid, Anders Roslund will love this book. I kept pushing it aside to read other things and I am sorry I did. This book was fast paced and thrilling. I have a really hard...
I won this book through a Library Thing Early Reviewers giveaway. I had thought from reading the book's summary that it was going to be a fast-paced thriller. After reading the book I realized that that statement is only true for the second half of the book. The first half of the book seemed odd to ...
An extraordinary book - with the most surprising ending (could never have guessed), imagine one of the central, essentially good, police characters being a 'baddie'. 3 and a halfIt was odd not having it set anywhere in particular and I felt it lost something as a result. I never realised how much se...
