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.

When a key witness—as well as his partner—are gunned down in broad daylight, Boston homicide detective Lieutenant Joe McGuire swears he will not rest until he finds the killer.

Gypsy Sins

Leaving behind the violence of the Boston streets and the politics of the Boston Police Department, homicide detective Joe McGuire is settled in a new life in the Bahamas. But when his closest living relative—his Aunt Cora—dies, McGuire returns home to attend her funeral and settle her estate.

Solitary Dancer

Now a former homicide detective, Joe McGuire spends his days in a drug-induced haze trying to forget the brutal beating that almost cost him his life. Driven by his addiction, McGuire now associates with the kind of criminals he used to bring to justice.

Haunted Hearts

His drug addiction behind him, former Boston homicide detective Joe McGuire is now a private investigator for a prominent law firm, filling his days with open-and-shut cases and his nights with an office romance.

Praise for John Lawrence Reynolds

“One of Canada’s best mystery writers.”—Globe and Mail

Wizard’s First Rule, the first novel by Terry Goodkind, was a phenomenon from the moment it was published by Tor Books in 1994, selling more than 100,000 copies in North America alone. It still sells more than 100,000 copies a year and has gone on to bestsellerdom in the United Kingdom and in more than twenty foreign translations as well as audiobook form.

It is now being developed as one of the most ambitious television miniseries of all time. Executive Producer Sam Raimi (director of the three Spider-Man movies), in collaboration with Disney/ABC, is creating a 22-episode adaptation of the book to be filmed in New Zealand.

Richard and Kahlan’s story unfolds over ten more novels, collectively known as the Sword of Truth series, concluding with Confessor in 2007. Placing Goodkind in the elite club of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, the series has sold more than twenty million copies to date worldwide.

In Wizard’s First Rule, Goodkind introduced the world to an ordinary forest guide, Richard Cypher, and the mysterious, powerful woman he comes to love, Kahlan Amnell. Learning his true identity, Richard accepts his destiny as the one man who can stop the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl. Hunted relentlessly, betrayed and alone, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword and invoke something more noble within himself as the final confrontation with Darken Rahl looms.

The importance of Wizard’s First Rule is sourced in Goodkind taking on the toughest of all literary challenges: to tell an electrifying story of action, violence, and adventure that also makes people think, and that would influence the choices and actions of its readers.
