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
What’s on my mind as September begins? New Orleans!
I’ll be spending a week in New Orleans exploring the city and attending the Bouchercon World Mystery Convention as one of the attending authors. I’m in a creative lull (in a good way) right now after the launch of WHISPERS IN THE MIST and handing off the manuscript for my 2017 novel, PATH INTO DARKNESS (woohoo!). I predict that by the end of the month, I’ll have started writing the first draft of Untitled Novel 2018!
Meanwhile, on the home front, I’m looking forward to autumn as I always do. Pull on the boots, eat local apples and pears, and complete a few gardening tasks before winter sets in. I’ve got my firewood ready for winter!
