Naked. Incoherent. Covered with blood. That's how Detective Frank Blackburn finds her - a beautiful Jane Doe brandishing a pair of scissors near the scene of a brutal murder. Is she the perpetrator? Or is she the only eyewitness to the handiwork of Vincent Van Gogh, a twisted serial killer with an "artistic" bent? To find out, Blackburn takes her to renowned psychiatrist Dr. Michael Tolan. But Tolan has problems of his own. One year ago today, his beloved wife, Abby, was savagely slaughtered by the very same serial killer.
And when Jane Doe starts saying things that only Abby could know...about long-buried secrets...about the night of Abby's death...Tolan finds himself headed for a confrontation with his past that could well lead to a breakdown. Now it's up to Frank Blackburn to find the connection between Jane, Tolan...and Vincent - before the killer strikes again.

Robert Gregory Browne tells very twisted tales
Any additional comments?
This book is exactly what I've come to expect from Robert Gregory Browne. Twisted main plot with multiple sub plots all coming to a spell binding conclusion. Characters are fleshed out, generally the protagonist is an injured person with multiple flaws that lead them down the wrong path. The conclusion is not expected. Scott Brick's performance is as always flawless.

If you could sum up Whisper in the Dark in three words, what would they be?
Really enjoyable listen
What other book might you compare Whisper in the Dark to and why?
The voodoo aspect of the book was unexpected, but quite fascinating. It was a similar mould to the John Connolly books, where some of the characters are beyond the grave, but the theme is not overdone.
What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?
When Scott Brick is reading a boring book his delivery makes it even worse, but when he's reading an interesting book his style is very listenable.
