WINNER of the Literary Titan Book Award!!
Women of color are not a priority of law enforcement in 1800’s Missouri. They are not even considered human. These social injustices allow a serial killer to run rampant. Sarah, a beautiful black slave, finds herself in the crosshairs of a monster who murders with impunity. The only one concerned with her plight is the master’s son. Will Matthew find the strength to rescue this slave girl, even if he lacks the courage to admit he’s in love with her…
It’s Jack the Ripper meets Roots in this pulse pounding historical thriller. House of Whispers packs the chills of a Stephen King book, the romance of a Nicholas Sparks novel and the in your face irony of an M. Night Shyamalan flic.
Critics are saying…
“Very, very, very good. It’s not often that I start reading a book and it consumes me right away and forces me to re-prioritize my life for a little while. This is a terrific piece of historical fiction/romantic/thriller/suspense (the first book I’ve ever read like this) and I am at a loss for words to describe the range of emotions I experienced while reading it.”
-Indie Book Reviewers
“Catalina DuBois’s Book of Matthew: House of Whispers is a tale of forbidden love that, at times, seems Shakespearean in its delivery. DuBois’s story reads easily and quickly. I didn’t want to put it down. I found myself cheering for the more righteous characters, and hating the more deviant of them. I’d love to read Part II and see where DuBois takes Matthew and Sarah’s journey.”
