Publisher's Summary

Some loves transcend time. Some loves were never meant to be. Some loves are cut short by the evil of others. When Sheriff James Tolbert and his fiance were killed by a malicious rancher and his cutthroat minions, nobody could expect that the very passion that fueled their love would be the same passion that fueled ghostly revenge. When grave robbers unearth Sheriff Tolbert's tomb searching for Old West relics, a vengeful spirit is unleashed on a small Texas town hellbent on revenge. If those responsible couldn't be made to pay, then their progeny would, and they would pay in the most bloody and horrific manner the spirit could dream of. Can modern day law enforcement stop a spirit destined to fulfill an oath made in death? Even when aided by a Texas Ranger and UCLA Paranormal Investigators, how can they stop something that is already dead and buried?

richly proves that love is a strong emotion

NOTE: Violence and Rape Scenes

Whispers by Heath Stallcup richly proves that love is a strong emotion that knows no bounds. Neither does vengeance!

Sheriff James Tolbert and his beautiful fiancé are confronted by an evil, greedy rancher, the rancher’s son and their ranch hands. All who believe they are above the law. The fiancé dies a horrible death alongside Tolbert who is forced to watch her slow painful death. The evil doers take gratuitous violence to the extreme leaving Tolbert nearly in pieces.

Move ahead a few decades and meet the descendants of the evil doers all converging in the same location. Mix in a couple of grave robbers and one vengeful ghost and the police have their hands full trying to solve the brutal and seemingly unconnected murder cases that are popping up in abundance.

A cast of characters that include deputies, an ornery Sheriff, a constable, a history writer, a medium of sorts and a team of Ph.D. ghost busters, the descendants, and a couple of misfit drug taken grave robbers. Each character is fully developed as the story needs them to be allowing the story to flow through time and location easily.

It comes down to who will win – the vengeful spirit Sheriff Two Guns Tolbert or will the police and ghost busters put the kibosh on him before he gets his revenge? A couple of surprises throw the reader for a loop at the end.

Excellently written and vividly described in great details. Although the rape scenes were not vividly described, there is no doubt how vicious they were.

I felt myself rooting for Two Guns Tolbert but in the end … no, I still wanted him to win.

A long listen but one filled with twists and turns, action packed excitement and realistic characters. At one time in my life I was a paranormal researcher. Stallcup did an excellent job of researching thus making the haunting more real.

Stallcup is an author that knows how to tell a story!

This is a long audio but one that you will enjoy. A well deserved 5 Star rating.

Aaron Shook did an excellent job of narrating. Although I hated his whiney voice for a couple of the characters, he nailed each and every one of them!

No issues with production.

If you love ghost stories, this book is for you!

What did you love best about Whispers?

I thought that Whispers was a great book! A friend referred it to me and I am glad that he did. The story moves along at a nice pace that keeps you interested. The characters are well thought out and are very believable. There was not one character that did everything, solved everything or put everything together. Each character (even the bad guys) brought something to how the story evolved. And the ghost? Absolutely terrifying!

What did you like best about this story?

This book was fun to listen to while I was driving. It had its scary moments as well as downright funny scenes that made me laugh out loud, which, of course, made the person in the next car look at me funny. Apparently, I have a loud laugh.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene actually had nothing to with the "ghost" aspect, but rather the humorous. Deputy Denise is picking up Bobby Bridger at the request of the sheriff. Her initial reaction of having to follow the tall tree-man into the scary dark hole was hilarious! Especially since she is supposed to be a tough, no nonsense deputy.

If you could take any character from Whispers out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Bobby Bridger. Tall, armed and deadly...Need I say more?

Any additional comments?

The narrator did an excellent job at voicing each character, even the females. There was a definite distinction between each voice which made the characterization easy to follow as to who was talking.
