Whispers in the Mist

(2016)
(The second book in the County Clare Mystery series)
A novel by

 
There's a whisper in the mists

In Lisfenora, Ireland, a strange fog has rolled in off the Atlantic. Along with the fog comes tales of the Grey Man, a predatory faery of local lore who snatches innocent souls into his deadly gloom.

And with the mists come murder

When a teenage boy dies in Detective Sergeant Danny Ahern's arms, Danny finds himself pursuing his own grey man, a killer who becomes more elusive the closer Danny gets to the truth. A mute woman may be the key to solving the murder and helping Danny heal his own broken life, but first she must unlock the memories from her past.

Praise:

"A worthy successor to Kilmoon in tone, mood, complexity, and keen insight into human failures and triumphs." - Kirkus Reviews

"The struggles of [Alber's] characters adds depth and power. A first-rate crime novel that will satisfy fans of Dicey Deere and Bartholomew Gill." - Library Journal

"Whispers in the Mist is evocative of the rolling hills and mystical beliefs of Ireland - as well as a brooding tale of murder . . . A complex and thrilling story about family, love and healing." - Crimespree Magazine

"Lisa Alber's mysteries are atmospheric - brooding, complex, and featuring enough twists and turns to keep you guessing." - Lori Rader-Day, Anthony Award-winning author of The Black Hour and Little Pretty Things

"Rich, dark, and complex - every aspect of Alber's second novel rises above the commonplace. The mystery's resolution is expertly teased from layers of motive, obligation, attraction and repulsion, all in a memorably atmospheric setting." - Sophie Littlefield, bestselling author of The Guilty One
