What People Say
“Richard Hatin fans rejoice! He’s done it again. Deadly Whispers is a thrill-loaded, pulse-pounding, race by four boys between a harmless foray into a cave in 1962 and the unspeakable horror that will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Set time aside when you pick up this one because you won’t be able to put it down!” —Don Helin, award winning author of Devil’s Den and Thy Kingdom Come
“Richard Hatin’s Deadly Whispers reminds you what it was like as a child to have the hair stand up on the back of your neck at the fear of what might be living underneath your bed. It is a riveting story that will make you think twice about a career in spelunking!” —Rick Robinson, international award winning author of Alligator Alley and Writ of Mandamus
