When a key witness—as well as his new partner—are gunned down in broad daylight, Boston homicide detective Lieutenant Joe McGuire swears he will not rest until he finds the killer. But when his investigation threatens to expose an ongoing government investigation into the decades-old theft of a military weapon, McGuire himself becomes the hunted.
With the help of an anonymous, although not innocent, source, McGuire uncovers the truth behind his witness’s murder . . . but not before McGuire himself comes perilously close to the mastermind behind one of the greatest unsolved thefts in military history.
Whisper Death is the third novel in the Joe McGuire mystery series. It is followed by Gypsy Sins.
