Award winning author, TL Hines, killed em’ dead with his first novel, Waking Lazarus, but The Dead Whisper On...

Ok, no more bad puns or clichés, but I just can’t say enough about Tony’s latest release. Brilliantly written, and wrought with delicious suspense, The Dead Whisper On had me hooked from the first sentence and wouldn’t let me go. Well done Tony!

The Dead Whisper On has earned my highest recommendation.
About the author:

Tony L. Hines, a professional writer for more than 15 years, is the author of Waking Lazarus, named one of Library Journal’s Top 25 Genre Novels of 2006. His articles have appeared in publications as varied as Log Homes, Conservative Theological Journal, and Travel & Leisure. He is also Creative Director at Montana's largest advertising agency. He lives in Billings, Montana, with his wife and daughter.
From inside the front cover:

Would You Run Into a Burning Building?

Candace "Canada Mac" MacHugh lives a ghost of her former life.

Once a proud Butte, Montana, miner who daily risked her life setting explosives, she's now a garbage collector in her dying hometown.

Her beloved father is dead and she doesn't speak with her mom.

Canada Mac is alone. Longing for the past. Dreaming of making a difference.

Until one night when her father's voice speaks to her from the shadows. The dead, it seems, have messages they hunger to share with the world--warnings of impending disasters and grave danger. Of cities doomed to burn.

But they need Canada's help.


"Hines writes with wry humor and imagination…in his best moments, Hines brings to mind W. G. Griffiths (Driven)." --Publishers Weekly

"Hines excels at writing gripping supernatural thrillers with plenty of twists and turns; he'll pull you in from page one.
--Library Journal

"The Dead Whisper On will appeal to anyone who likes a good mystery with fast-paced action. The author uses this story to instill in the reader that one person's actions, whether intentional or unintentional, can greatly impact future events. Hines effectively utilizes the well-known symbols of shadows and light to represent the battle between the forces of evil and good....

The Dead Whisper On is an excellent example of a 'page turner.' I found myself saying, 'Just one more chapter' so many times and ended up staying awake much later than expected. But that is okay. It was definitely worth losing a little sleep to be entertained with such a fast-paced and suspenseful novel." --Leslie Granier, readerviews.com

"Filled with shadows, spooks and dark, sinister landscapes, The Dead Whisper On by T. L. Hines is a scary book--and I make it a point not to read scary books. I made an exception for this one.

The Dead Whisper On is really very good. I know that, because when I picked it up the other morning (of course I read it in broad daylight as my mama didn't raise no fool), I didn't, couldn't put it down again until I'd finished the last page. I'd intended just to check it out, but the author hooked me with the first sentence- 'A dead man spoke to her from the shadows.'....

Tightly written and well paced, T.L. Hines is a gifted writer and surely on the way to a brilliant career. The Dead Whisper On is so visually haunting I feel like I saw the movie instead of read the book."
--Diane Keyes, armchairinterviews.com

"In a follow up to his splendid thriller debut, Waking Lazarus, T.L. Hines hits the ground running with his new supernatural thriller The Dead Whisper On, proving that he's not the taste of the month, but rather a proven writer who's here to stay. Blending elements of ancient mythology with tenets of faith, Hines has once again crafted a contemporary supernatural fantasy that will ensnare readers from the very beginning, and won't let them go until the final plot twist is unveiled."
--Kevin Lucia, infuzemag.com

"T.L. Hines has returned with a vengeance with his second novel The Dead Whisper On.... a true nail biter from start to finish."
--Michelle Steffy, 1340mag.com

"Tony Hines, author of the acclaimed Waking Lazarus, raises the bar in his second novel, The Dead Whisper On. He immerses the reader in the world and culture of Butte, Montana, a former copper mining boom town that has declined as the mines have played out. Unique characters populate his latest book.... The plot twists like the mine tunnels under Butte and made it difficult to stop reading. Nothing is as it first appears. Tony raises troubling questions that tie in with our current fears and apprehension . Who, or what, is really our enemy? It's an answer that could be summed up in a familiar quotation, but it would also give away the heart of this book. It's a question and answer combo that I've continued to turn over in my mind since I finished reading the book several days ago-one that I'll continue to chew on for days to come." --
Cheryl Russell, titletrakk.com

"The Dead Whisper On blows away most Christian supernatural thrillers. Following up last year's well-received Waking Lazarus, author T. L. Hines once again brings Koontz-like mystery and intrigue to Montana.... Once you start reading The Dead Whisper On, you won't want to stop. I highly recommend it."
--Randy Brandt, Contend4TheFaith.org

"T.L. Hines stormed onto the scene last year with his highly acclaimed debut novel, Waking Lazarus. In this latest thriller he is continuing to establish himself as one of this market's greatest talents. The Dead Whisper On is a strange and delightful supernatural tale that twists and turns its way to an unexpected and satisfying conclusion. At no time does Hines hint at where the story is going, and it makes the ride that much more enjoyable. Canada MacHugh is a delightful character and her journey inspires us all to fight the darkness that threatens to destroy us all. This is fresh and unique storytelling that fans of supernatural thrillers will love."
--Jake Chism, christianreviewofbooks.com

"The Dead Whisper On is a fast-paced thriller that chilled my soul and kept me awake at night. The descriptions of the monster that relentlessly pursued Canada gripped me so that I was unable to put the book down. You won't want to miss this one!"
--Lindsey Freitas, bookloons.com
