THE ANCIENT WHISPER is a wonderfully written suspense novel written by M.A. Appleby. I didn't know what to expect upon selecting it, and to my surprise, was taken into a world and culture that was fascinating. I was riveted by the colorful characters, and not having answers to questions easily. The exposition keeps you on the seat of your pants. I couldn't put it down! I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
