|Plot Summary of Deadly Whispers|
|"A young girl's nightmare. Her two friends brutally murdered, left without a heart. The killer, chasing her. A promise; a deadly
whisper through the bathroom door: “I will come back for you!”
Twenty years later, a series of brutal murders shake the city of New Haven, Connecticut. All the victims, young professional women, are found dead, left without a heart.
Special agent Stacey Loggins is on the search for this monster, a bloodthirsty killer who knows her every move, and who challenged her
to a deadly game.
He is the king; she is the pawn.
Stephi Loggins, Stacey's only sister, has disappeared. The “Heartbreaker”
has challenged Stacey. She has exactly seven days to decipher the mystery surrounding these murders. If in seven days she can
whisper in his ears his name, Stephi will live.
If she's wrong...
The pace has been set. Time is running out. Who will outwit the other?
Lourdes Maldon, Resident Scholar
|"An incredible suspense novel where the killer seeks revenge in unsuspectable ways. It keeps you guessing till the very end. It plays with your mind, never knowing what caused so much pain in this person to trigger such vengeful acts. It gets to a point where you feel pity for the killer instead of feeling it for the victims."
Franchesca, Resident Scholar
