Sinossi

The sequel to Along Came a Demon:

I'm Tiff Banks and I talk to the violently slain. I've learned to live with that, in fact I've made a career out of it.

Ex-detective Royal Mortensen and I opened our own investigative agency, and I thought we made a good team. I felt secure in our personal relationship too, until our new clients turned up. Why did Royal take them on without consulting me, and why are they withholding information which could help solve their case? I don't think they're human, and Royal knows exactly what they are, but refuses to tell me. I think there's a lot Royal isn't telling me.

I discovered that while I looked into the disappearance of author Gia Sabato's lover, Royal investigated something far more sinister. Are the two cases connected? Does an authentic nineteenth-century journal have anything to do with either?

When the case turns ugly, so does my relationship with the one man I've come to trust. So I'll do what I do best: pound the pavement and talk to dead people. The dead are always watching, they can do nothing else. They whisper to me.

L'autore

Linda Welch was born in Hampshire, England, and moved to the USA in 1975. 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 and does not see dead people and/or demons. 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.

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 Interesting and clever spin on the PI/detective genre 14 gennaio 2016

I was intrigued enough by the first book in this series to buy this second book. Good writing and creative plotting does this to me. Tiff Banks, private investigator stuck with the ability to see and hear and converse with ghosts of the violently slain, has teamed up with Royal Mortenson, a Gelpha (sort of fairy/demon/other dimensional being), in their own PI agency in the human realm. This case involves horrific burning/beheading of Gelphas and Tiff and Royal are called on to solve the evil doings. With stubbornness, awkwardness, good instincts and ghost-talking, Tiff manages to cause no end of difficulty as well as movement toward resolution. Both Tiff and Royal are developing as interesting characters as well as partners and the worlds in which they inhabit add to the tension of their burgeoning relationship. I am not yet enamored with the Whispering series, but I am curious enough to latch onto the third novel.
4.0 su 5 stelle These are fun books! 30 aprile 2016
Di Steven Yates - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Definitely books in the teens or young adult range, but also still entertaining to an old timer such as myself. The plot is relatively straightforward but still there are surprises here and there. It is enjoyable to see the progression towards the ultimate solution. In this book some character seem like beings that we might have used to base the legend of vampires and even one writes vampire books. So it was a little frustrating that nowhere in the book did they say hey maybe this person is the origin of the kind of individual being written about. Or maybe that's just an obvious inference and I'm talking about nothing LOL. Regardless -- these are fun books and I'm going to enjoy the rest of them as I bought them all :-)

4.0 su 5 stelle Better than first book 21 settembre 2010
Di P. Fox - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I thought the second book in this series was better than the first. In fact, I hadn't been very excited after reading the first and only bought this one because the Kindle version was only 2.99. Demon Hunters was well-written with a good mystery plot. I was a little disappointed that she didn't wrap up all the plot lines--what did happen to Elizabeth, and what were the Dark Cousins--but not knowing didn't spoil the ending.

I especially like her character development. Her main character Tiff can be difficult, obtuse, understanding, and kind. I like the way our perception of characters, mainly Gia, can change along with Tiff's. I think Welch has done a good job in developing her character's abilities to talk with ghosts who have been violently killed. They are tied to the location of their murder until the person who killed them dies. Others, such as the two in Tiff's home, choose to stay there. The author doesn't overdo the use of these ghosts as observers and informants, but instead allows them to only be used occasionally.

I am looking forward to the next book.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Fantastic Sequel! 10 febbraio 2010
Di Glinda Harrison - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is the second volume in Linda Welch's Whisperings series. And, believe it or not, as good as Along Came a Demon was, this sequel is even better.

In this volume, Tiff Banks has made some major changes in her life, including starting a new detective agency with her partner, Royal. But as Tiff tries to move her life forward in a new direction, things don't exactly go as planned. When money becomes an issue, she is reduced to rescuing a kidnapped kitty for the reward--with the help of her faithful Scottie, MacKlutzy, of course. And she discovers that she may not have as much choice as she would like in choosing which jobs to take, or how to handle them once she's gotten them.

As the book unfolds, a lot more is revealed about Tiff's past and how she uses her gift. The book also introduces the demons known as the "Dark Cousins," an interesting group that I hope we learn a lot more about in future volumes in the series. And, of course, her roommates Jack and Mel are irrepressible.

Author Linda Welch is always a talented, thoughtful writer and does a great job with the writing of humor--the kidnapped kitty section is hilarious. Most impressive is the skillful recreation of a period journal that provides a vital clue to solving the mystery. It is so well written and feels totally authentic. Like the first book, this one is this one is a suspenseful, fast paced, fun read that I highly recommend.

At the end of the book is a preview of the first chapter of the next book in the series, Demon on a Distant Shore. That volume promises to give some insight into the background of at least one of Tiff's ghostly roommates.
