    I love the unusual concept of being able to see a killer and victim's aura, or "shine" as Magnus calls it to track a killer and bring him to justice. In this case, as you learn the circumstances that turns a normal, caring person into a serial killer you may find yourself sympathizi...

    I got a free copy of this book from Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. I found this book to be completely stupid. I have read other paranormal mystery type books before and this one was so unbelievable that I had to fight to complete it. I had no problem putting i...

    Whispers of the Dead is the second book in a fun series with a unique premise. While it can be read as a stand-alone, I recommend starting with Collecting the Dead, book 1. Most of the story is written from Steps' perspective, in first person. I really enjoy his character. We get to...

    I admit that I wasn?t sure for the first few pages whether I?d even finish the chapter, much less the book. There was something about Steps, the main character, that I just couldn?t warm to. He seemed too odd, his language too formal, his relationship with his partner just too we...

    4.5 stars. Whispers of the Dead by Spencer Kope is an innovative mystery starring a protagonist with an unusual skill that is utilized while solving murders. This second installment in the Special Tracking Unit series can stand on its own, but I highly recommend Collecting the Dead ...

    Beginning with the first in the series, the premise of the Special Tracking Unit is compelling: An FBI tracker who sees the aura of people left through physical contact with the places and things touched. Makes for one amazing story line. This second in the series, Whispers of the D...

    3.5 I read the summary of this, and was drawn to the unique talent Steps has, a rare form of synsthesia. He see, what he calls the shine, on people. Each person's unique color, not an aura but trAils on the ground or things they touch. He and Jimmy belong to a special tracking unit of ...

    I couldn?t put this book down once I started it. I?m truly impressed with this book. It was well written, well developed, and it easily brought someone into the story and world of Steps and Jimmy even if they hadn?t read the first book. It was super easy to follow, it kept me on ...

    In 2016, Spencer Kope wowed me with his first Special Tracking Unit mystery, Collecting the Dead, and I'm thrilled to say that he hasn't taken his foot off the gas for Whispers of the Dead. There's a razor-sharp investigation here, as well as a fast pace, and a group of characters who ...

    This was a rather quick read and was fast-paced, and I enjoyed the crime aspect of the whole novel. Although it's second in a series, I didn't feel left out of the story since I didn't read the first installment. I really enjoy when a series does this. Whispers of the Dead was very wel...

    DNF at 25% The main character, Magnus ?Steps? Craig, uses his synesthesia to help solve crime. Being able to see what a person touched in a specific color comes in handy for his job in the FBI. However, I found all of the characters and dialogue extremely annoying and unfortunat...
