Whispers of the Dead

Tom Gabriel has now got his PI&39;s licence and has been asked to find a woman&39;s missing husband, but nothing is what it seems. The more he finds, the less he understands. Rae has been promoted to Investigative Journalist, and with Tom&39;s help is trying to identify a John Doe found on Porpoise Point, but she&39;s in terrible danger because there are powerful people who don&39;t want her to find out. There are still seventeen missing children from Tom and Rae&39;s last case. Little Sally Stackhouse helps him by giving him a name that&39;s connected to the missing children, but he must go away to discover that the danger is much closer to home.
