On My Radar: Spencer Kope's Whispers of the Dead
Collecting the Dead, was one of my Best Reads of the year, and I kept waiting for the follow-up this year only to have no joy.
Imagine my smiles when I looked through NetGalley's newest offerings to find this:
Magnus “Steps” Craig is part of the elite three-man Special Tracking Unit of the FBI. Called in on special cases where his skills are especially indispensable, Steps is renowned for his incredible ability to find and follow trails over any surface better than anyone else. But there’s a secret to his success.
Steps has a kind of synesthesia, an ability that allows him to see whatever a person has touched in a unique color―what Steps calls ‘shine.’ His ability is known to only a few people―his father, the director of the FBI, and his partner, Special Agent Jimmy Donovan.
The Special Tracking Unit soon discovers another, earlier victim; again, only the feet were left behind in an icebox. In Spencer Kope’s Whispers of the Dead―with few clues besides the body parts left behind―Steps and his team find themselves enmeshed in the most difficult case of their careers. And The Icebox Killer has only just begun."
This second book in the Special Tracking Unit series will be released on April 17, 2018. This is very good news for those of us who read and enjoyed the first book... and it gives those of you who haven't yet had a chance to read Collecting the Dead enough time so you'll be ready for April 17!
