Whisper Death

Book 3, Joe McGuire - Joe McGuire Mystery Series

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


When a key witness—as well as his new partner—are gunned down in broad daylight, Boston homicide detective Lieutenant Joe McGuire swears he will not rest until he finds the killer. But when his investigation threatens to expose an ongoing government investigation into the decades-old theft of a military weapon, McGuire himself becomes the hunted.

With the help of an anonymous, although not innocent, source, McGuire uncovers the truth behind his witness’s murder . . . but not before McGuire himself comes perilously close to the mastermind behind one of the greatest unsolved thefts in military history.

Whisper Death is the third novel in the Joe McGuire mystery series. It is followed by Gypsy Sins.

Praise for Whisper Death

“. . . well-drawn characters, a terrific plot, plenty of action, and some fine atmosphere. . . .”—Hamilton Spectator

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 03, 1992 – Finally bored with his unofficial sabbatical tending bar in the Bahamas, disaffected police detective Joe McGuire returns to Boston to retrieve his shield. He's quickly saddled with the job of extraditing Bunker Crawford, a post office employee who killed a postal inspector and fled to Palm Springs. Oddly, there's no file on Crawford and every question McGuire asks meets with federal disinformation. When his baby-faced temporary partner--the new lover of McGuire's old inamorata--is shot and Crawford assassinated, McGuire pushes all the harder, stirring up a hornet's nest of federal agents in the California desert. Reynolds ( The Man Who Murdered God ) is smack on the money with characters like Boston police captain Fat Eddy Vance, an oily buffoon, and McGuire's bedridden ex-partner, Ollie Schantz, a sharp mind in a broken body. But he obscures these bright sparks with a creaky government conspiracy plot and sophomoric dialogue between McGuire and a rich, flagrantly gorgeous widow, whose motives, meant to be mysterious, are obvious. Added to these false notes is a desert hermit spouting courtly prose who knows Crawford's secrets.
