Book Review: The Whisperer by Donato Carissi

If you’re one of those people who can always guess “who done its” I suggest you try reading, The Whisperer by Donato Carissi.  This debut thriller originally published in Italy in 2009 has become an international bestseller and has just recently been published in the United States.    This page-turner starts out with the discovery of six severed arms arranged in a pattern.  Five of the arms belong to young girls who have been missing.   Who does the sixth arm belong to?  The police bring in profiler, Mila Vasquez, who has an uncanny ability to find missing children and Goran Gavila, a celebrated criminologist.  The two seem to be on the same wavelength when it comes to solving crimes, or are they brought in to be scapegoats in an impossible case to solve?  Carrisi writes about the quirky details of his characters so that we care and empathize with them.  This book is not for the faint of heart from the discovery of the arms to the issue of pedophilia.    If you like twists and turns of an imaginative plot and like to be kept on the edge of your seat, read The Whisperer, you won’t be disappointed!
