Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

I'm told the dead are all around us. I wouldn't know about that, I see only the violently slain. They can be victims of hit-and-run, innocents caught in a cross-fire, the murdered. They whisper to me and they never, ever, forget the face of their killer. I've learned to live with my uncanny ability, in fact I've made a career out of it.

The departed aren't the only supernaturals I see. No, they're not vampires or werewolves or fae - those things don't exist. We live side by side with what some call the Otherworldy. That's too much of a mouthful for me, I call them demons. If you saw them as I do, you'd know why.

Right now I'm trying to track down a missing six year-old boy whose mother was murdered. Or maybe she wasn't. To further complicate the case, Clarion PD gave me a partner I'd rather shoot than work with.

I can't tell them he's a demon.

They'd think I'm crazy.

I'm Tiff Banks. Welcome to my world.

WHISPERINGS. Paranormal mystery with a splash of humor and dash of romance.

Also by Linda Welch: Downside Rain, an urban fantasy, and Femme Fatales, a dark urban fantasy short story collection.

A kick butt heroine, dead people and demons. This will have you racing the pages by and wanting to dig into the next in the series.~ Free Book Reviews

Excellent, well written, smoothly styled, and without a disappointing moment through the whole novel.~ The Monthly Aspectarian

I love the voice of Tiff Banks (our heroine). I love her no nonsense approach and dry humor. Linda Welch’s descriptive writing makes me feel like I am in the story.~ Love Romance Passion

Linda Welch has created an interesting world where "demons" walk among humans . . . a great detective, who-dunnit-type story that kept me interested.~ A Simple Love of Reading

Linda Welch pens a engaging tale, full of action and adventure. A definite page turner full of twists to keep you guessing until the end.~ LL Book Review

I’ve been amazed to discover the number of ways authors have to give a novel a paranormal twist. Along Came a Demon is among my favorites. I was happy discovering they aren’t all glittery vampires.~BigAl’s Books and Pals

L'autore

Linda Welch was born in Hampshire, England. After moving to the USA, she lived in Idaho, California and New Mexico before settling in Utah. She now lives in a mountain valley, more or less halfway up the mountainside, with her husband and Scottish terrier. Unlike Tiff Banks, the heroine of Linda's Whispering series of paranormal mysteries, she is not tall and white-haired, does not see demons and hasn't seen a dead person for a while. What she does see are moose, deer, raccoon, skunk, wild turkey, a huge bird population and a ridiculous amount of snow. When not working at her other job, and depending on the season, she is usually tending to her Scottie, filling the bird feeders, futilely attacking the weeds in her garden or shoveling out after a snowstorm. Look for the sequel to Along Came a Demon:The Demon Hunters.

2.0 su 5 stelle Just too goofy for me 20 giugno 2014
Di J I Means - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Why don't I like this book? To be honest, the summary peaked my interest. I could imagine all sorts of interesting stories that could emerge from the heroine's ability to see and talk to those that had died under tragic circumstances. I decided to take a chance, and downloaded it.

The book held my interest until about a third of the way into it, when it took a sharp turn from believability and revealed a weird world where they fight with swords, that their ruler was going to be this stranger than strange unlovable (to me) child, and the hero (of sorts) was part of this world; This is where the heroine's brain turned to tofu, the hero's muscles and temperament turned into the type of man found in purple prose (bodice rippers), so my interest plummeted to zero.

I simply cannot stand it when otherwise smart, strong feminine protagonists become slavering idiots in the presence of a macho male running on overactive hormones and no brains. The other world created in the book was too unbelievable, to hard to accept. I did finish it but it was extremely difficult. Thank goodness it was not that long.

This was just a poorly written, silly fairy tale. I doubt I will continue with this author's books.

5.0 su 5 stelle Wonderful new Paranormal Mystery Series! 2 ottobre 2014
Di Leiah - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

But, soft: behold! lo where it comes again!
I’ll cross it, though it blast me. – Stay, illusion!
If thou hast any sound, or use a voice.
Speak to me. – Hamlet 1.1

Why, what care I ? If thou canst nod, speak too, -
If charnel-houses, and our graves, must send
Those that we bury, back, our monuments
Shall be the maws of kites. – (Macbeth, 3.4)

There is no ghost clause in that lease. – David Simmons

I know it is silly, but when I find an author I wasn’t previously aware of who really catches my interest and makes me go Ooh! I always feel smug. Like I am the first person who has found this particular author and deserve a pat on the back. Ha! As If!!

Anyway, when I found Linda Welch and Along Came A Demon I got that same feeling. A giggly, bubbly feeling as I read an Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Mystery that is just enough different than the norm, and just far enough along the curve of creativity to make me sit up and take notice. And spend way too many of my sleeping hours reading to be health when I have a bad cold and need my rest. Ah well! It was worth it…

Tiff Banks (don’t ever call her “Tiffany” if you know what is good for you – hey, she is 6’4″ – does that sound like a Tiffany to you?) Got a short, sharp shock a few years ago, when she realized the woman she was passing in the doorway of a cafe in San Francisco was covered in blood, apparently shot. Screaming for someone to call 9-1-1 and trying to talk the woman into sitting down until the ambulance arrived, she was horrified that everyone around her just stared at her and turned away. Well, that is how crazy people screaming about ambulances and dying women get looked at when there is obviously nobody standing there with blood all over them, right?

Since that time, Tiff has moved back to her old home town of Clarion, in the Utah mountains. Well, it has to be better than dealing with the massive number of dead people that surround her in San Francisco, right? Humm…. well, there may not be as many, but they are still there. Wow, look at that. She even has two of them living in her house. Jack and Mel were murdered there, though it wasn’t in the realtor’s disclosure forms. Well, no wonder, since the guy who owned the house before didn’t really advertise the fact that he had kidnapped and murdered two people and buried them in the basement. Well, it’s done now, and Tiff is stuck with her ‘roomies’ – even though their murderer has moved on, which should allow them to do so as well, neither intends on being reasonable. Although, with her roll as ‘speaker to the dead’ for the Clarion PD their assistance is often useful as she helps the PD track down murderers. And then again, sometimes they can just be a huge pain in the backside.

“There’s a naked woman in the garden,” Jack said.

Huh? Will you look at that? The dead aren’t supposed to wander from where they died, but Coralinda Marchant certainly has. And what happens next is one of the more creative takes on the supernatural I have found for a while – a take I am certainly enjoying! In this first book of the series Tiff is drawn into the murder of Coralinda and the search for her missing son into a world she knew was there, but really, really didn’t want to get into. For there are demons in the world, and those demons want the boy. And they aren’t hesitant to come after Tiff to get him. The concepts and ideas in play are fun, creative and at times kept my right on the edge of my seat as I held my breath, wondering why demons would want a little boy born on November 9, 2002 – or why so many little boys born on that date are now dead, murdered in unspeakable ways.

The second book of the series, The Demon Hunters, is just as good. Now partnered with a demon ex-cop from the first book, Tiff and Royal have opened their own detective agency. With Royal’s preternatural connections, strength and speed, and Tiff’s ability to talk to the dead, they make a good team – and the ‘bad guy’ demons still being after the two of them, working together gives them an edge. But now, they have new clients. And these clients could be even more deadly than the monsters they are chasing. The Dark Cousins of Royals people, the Gelpha, the good old DC are scary beyond all reason, and not afraid to mind bind, or murder, to reach their goals.

Townsman #1: Hey, Pacha, you just missed your relatives.

Pacha: My relatives?

Townsman #1: Yeah, we just sent them up to your house.

Pacha: What’d they look like?

Townsman #1: Well there was this big guy, and this older woman who was… well, how would you describe her?

Townsman #2: Ah, scary beyond all reason?

Townsman #1: Yeah, that’s it.

They have Royal’s mind locked up tight, and now Tiff is more on her own than not in trying to help Daven Clare and Gia Sabato, a monster in her own right, find her lover, Alissario Arellano (Rio) Borrego, who has been captured by an unknown party for an unknown reason. Well, not totally unknown. For both Dark Cousins and Gelpha are being burned and beheaded, just like a human would think to kill a vampire . . . but how is the murderer finding his victims all over the world? How are they being recognized, when no one other than Tiff seems to be able to recognize them under their glamour?

Welch as a way with a turn of phrase, a strong streak of humour, and a way of looking at life and relationships that is highly appealing. This isn’t your typical “vampires and werewolves” urban fantasy. Instead, Welch has gone in another, more creative direction that I am tickled to have found!

I know, I have to put down the Linda Welch and get my work done. Lots of books to read and review, edits to do. I know, I know . . . but these things are like potato chips – I can’t just eat one and walk away! Well, I read two, one after the other, but you know what I mean. And I don’t even know how Along Came A Demon wound up on my reader! Maybe she did a giveaway at some point and I grabbed it them? Anyway, I am just glad it did. And I will absolutely be reading more of this series. I just have to not . . . do . . . it . . . now . . .

4.0 su 5 stelle Urban fantasy with some adult situations. 18 marzo 2017
Di Angela Perry - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This is a urban fantasy with adult situations. Tiff sees 'dead people' and they can show her parts of their death at time. They can also communicate with her. Tiff has a lackluster social life, and lives with 2 ghosts that came with the house. She has seen what she calls demons in her past, and has always steered clear. But, a new death brings her assumptions about the demons to an end. Tiff's life changes, and she is ready to face those changes head on! Very nice story with quick wrap up and obvious opening for sequel.

5.0 su 5 stelle If you like Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson novels… 2 ottobre 2016
Di Cinema - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is an awesome start to a series! The tone and fun factor is really similar to Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson novels where the main heroine has powers that are different or have to be hidden from others, and soon finds herself knee deep in a world she’d only known a little about before, along with a sexy hero.

Tiff Banks can see and talk to the ghosts of people that were murdered, only their ghosts are stuck in the general vicinity of where they died. Her ability leads her to helping the police catch bad guys, but when she finds a ghost in her backyard, the rules she thought she knew about her strange ability are soon thrown for a loop. Creatures she thinks of as demons because of the way they look are now in the picture, and she knows almost nothing about them except that they’re bad news and to pretend she doesn’t know they exist. When the police unknowingly try to partner her up with a sexy undercover demon to solve a missing child case, the chaos begins…

If you like the Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson novels, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this book! I look forward to reading the next in the series.
4.0 su 5 stelle A worthy beginning to a new series -- detectives and paranormal -- yes! 30 dicembre 2015
Di Mb4pax - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Using Utah as a backdrop, Ms. Welch weaves an energetic tale of talking ghosts, seeing demons and solving homicides -- all managed by Tiff, a single police consultant just trying to make a living. A new series for me that caught my attention due to the reviews. I am happy I paid attention. With humor, a light touch, and a not-much-of-a-hero heroine, I was drawn to the feisty and vulnerable Tiff trying to figure out her life while figuring out murders. Asked to consult on a case of children's murders Tiff is assigned a partner (which she never has) and smacks unhappily into a demon -- Royal, a decorated homicide detective recently transferred to Tiff's town. Plots and subplots moved the story along and the dialogue was spot on to the characters whose personalities and backstories were skillfully doled out throughout. With suspense that did not give me nightmares and just enough romance to satisfy, I finished reading with a smile on my face and a search for the next book in the series.
