Product Description

Book 2 of the Neil Marshall Mystery novel series - Graduate student and part-time chef Neil Marshall only wants to go for an early morning run. Instead he witnesses the near-fatal shooting of legendary Houston private eye C.J. McDaniels, and he fears the gunmen can identify them. Before long, Neil finds himself in the eye of a hurricane, his quiet academic life ripped apart as he rides a swath of violence that cuts across a mansion in River Oaks to an eerily silent suburban home, from a secret hospital room to the bed of a fascinating woman. In Houston's sultry summer heat a deep-rooted rage is building from a whisper to a roar.

Praise for Book One of the series:
"Tim Hemlin's 'If Wishes Were Horses...' is one of the most entertaining first mysteries I've read in several years, and aspiring writer Neil Marshall is the most engaging amateur sleuth to come along since Jeff Abbott's Jordan Poteet. This novel is so good, I'd like it even if it weren't set in Texas." - Bill Crider, Author of many series including the Sheriff Dan Rhoades Mysteries, and resident of the Texas Literary Hall of Fame.

"A Welcome new voice in the mystery field." - Earl Emerson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just keeps getting better 28 June 2016
By Book Bits-n-Bobs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Whisper of Rage starts off with a bang, literally. It gets you hooked immediately then starts filling in with new characters and necessary background information. I liked the new characters and think it would be totally possible to have a whole series using the PI as the main character. Maybe there already is, I will have to look into this.
Tim Hemlin’s writing is smoother in this book. He also does well keeping the characters who continued on from the last book with their same personalities. However, Neil feels less broken in this book. In the last book he felt like he was almost being acted upon whereas this book it feels like he is making his own choices. It works really well to develop his character and show his growth as a person. I enjoy when a character can develop throughout a series and this is done very subtly.
There is mild language and a bit of sex behind the sceans but on a whole it is quite clean. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good Murder Mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked this book even more than the first book! 28 June 2016
By Amazon Lover Becca - Published on
I was given this by in exchange for an honest review from Loving the Book:
This book was easy to read as a stand alone, but also flows nicely right off the first book and into this second book. I found I liked this book even more than the first book. And since I am giving the first one a 5 star rating, that should say a lot. The way our Main Character becomes involved in this was very different than the first one. I felt the story was smoother, even easier to follow along, and so fast paced that I didn't realize how much time had gone by while reading it until it was over. But it was satisfying to read, and I am dying for the next book. There is more swearing that I noticed in this book - but again it is not out of place in the world created as the Private Investigator, the police, and our main character all get involved in this fabulous story. Definitely would recommend it to murder mystery lovers.
4.0 out of 5 stars Mystery, adventure to keep you guessing! 10 June 2016

At 28, Neil Marshall's life is about to change and take him on an adventure he never asked for and is finding unbelievable, When Neil witnesses a shooting involving C.J. McDaniels, a private eye, nothing is the same. Meeting C.J.'s daughter Linda, may be the only good thing that happens as Neil finds himself in the middle of a mystery. This was a good read with a few twists and turns to keep the reader guessing and make the story intriguing. The author does a great job keeping the action and the story line believable and one readers will enjoy following.
4.0 out of 5 stars An Unlikely Detective 26 June 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Although A Whisper of Rage reads well as a stand-alone novel, it is the second in the series. Because I had already read the first book, the few references to what had taken place in Neil's earlier life felt seamless to me. While out jogging, Neil foils the attempted murder of a private investigator. As he becomes involved with C.J. McDaniels and the man’s daughter, Linda, he finds himself a target. This leads to him joining their investigation whether he is wanted or not. What should have been a simple assignment was actually anything but with a lot of twists and surprises along the way.

I greatly enjoyed the main character in these books, Neil Marshall. He is an aspiring poet who supports himself by working as a chef for an upscale catering company--when he is not recuperating from being on the receiving end of some form of mayhem. Since the author is a poet and has worked as a catering chef, the details in his portrayal of Neil Marshall’s everyday life when he is not acting as amateur sleuth provided a realistic and insightful touch to the stories.

Neil Marshall is an accidental detective, stumbling into situations and pursuing the truth out of loyalty to friends and a desire for follow-through, not to mention a healthy curiosity. He is a self-depreciating hero, well aware of his failings, yet he forges forward often much to the chagrin of others. I love how the author used short, choppy sentence structure to add the “feel” behind the words describing Neil’s thoughts and feelings.

The books include a frequent use of f-bombs and taking God’s name in vain along with the other usual "language." Readers like me who prefer to not read works full of this kind of language will want to weigh that preference against the desire to read an engaging, suspenseful and well-written mystery.
4.0 out of 5 stars A daring mix of danger and humor 4 January 2017
By Author/Artist Cristi Taijeron - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After reading Tim Hemlin’s If Horses Were Wishes, I wanted to read more books in the Neil Marshall Mysteries series. A Whisper of Rage picked up shortly after where Book 1 left off, and started with a bang—the gunshot kind of bang! Once again, Neil was witness to a violent and deadly crime, and this time, he rescues the wounded man. Not just any man, a crude and impatient, chain smoking private investigator, and a reluctant alliance is formed. The plot thickens from there, as do the roles of the interesting new characters Neil meets while striving to solve the mystery. Through their unique and quirky traits, even the smallest characters are brought to life in a big way. Neil’s observations of them and the parts they play in this life threatening investigation, creates a daring mix of danger and humor that continues throughout the adventure. It was great hopping back into that beat old Bug and nice to see some of the old friends from Book 1. Once again, I look forward to reading another Neil Marshall Mystery.
