THE BLOOD WHISPERER is a brand new standalone mystery thriller featuring ex-CSI turned crime-scene cleaner Kelly Jacks, sent to prison for a crime she can’t remember. From Zoë Sharp, best-selling author of the highly acclaimed Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Fox series.
The uncanny abilities of London crime-scene specialist Kelly Jacks to coax evidence from the most unpromising of crime scenes once earned her the nickname of The Blood Whisperer.
Then six years ago all that changed.
Kelly woke next to the butchered body of a man, the knife in her hands and no memory of what happened.
She trusted the evidence would prove her innocent.
Now released after serving her sentence for involuntary manslaughter, Kelly must try to piece her life back together. Shunned by former colleagues and friends, the only work she can get is with the crime-scene cleaning firm run by her old mentor.
But old habits die hard. And when her instincts tell her things are not as they appear at the scene of a routine suicide, she can’t help but ask questions that somebody does not want answered.
Plunged into the nightmare of being branded a killer once again, Kelly is soon on the run from police, Russian thugs and a local gangster. Betrayed at every turn, she is fast running out of options.
But Kelly acquired a whole new set of skills on the inside. Now street-smart and wary, can she use everything she’s learned to evade capture and stay alive long enough to clear her name?
“The Blood Whisperer is a cracking, compulsive read: once you’ve read the electrifying first few pages, you’ll probably develop intense feelings of annoyance towards anyone or anything who takes you away from it and the wonderful, gutsy, spiky heroine. I loved every word of this brilliant, mind-twisting thriller and even yelped out loud at one of the genius twists.” Elizabeth Haynes
