WHISPERS IN THE MIST is available!

Mist has settled over Lisfenora village, bringing with it tales of a predatory faery called Grey Man. When a teenage boy dies in Danny’s arms, he finds himself pursuing his own grey man, a killer who becomes more elusive the closer Danny gets to the truth. A mysterious hermit jewelry maker, a mute woman on a quest to reconcile a past murder, and a dog turned hero join Merrit and Danny in the next installment of the County Clare mysteries.

Though the second installment in the County Clare series, you can read this novel as a standalone.

“Ingenious … Whispers in the Mist is evocative of the rolling hills and mystical beliefs of Ireland—as well as a brooding tale of murder. This is a complex and thrilling story about family, love and healing.” ―Crimespree Magazine

“A first-rate crime novel … [Alber] expertly captures the claustrophobic feel of life in a close-knit, insular community, and the struggles of her characters adds depth and power.” ―Library Journal


Sipping the novel's signature cocktail, The Misty Whisper. Secret ingredient? Irish Mist, but of course.

Thanks for visiting!
What’s on my mind as August begins? This is Whispers in the Mist book launch month!

It’s always a little nutty around book launch time. Between responding to well-wishers and writing guest blog posts and revising the *next* novel — whew — there’s barely a second to revel in good reviews. I did receive two more for Whispers in the Mist. I’m so grateful that readers (and reviewers) seem to be liking the book.
