#AuthorTravel - Okinawa with Lisa Carlisle - Palm Trees, Beaches & Hauntings #Japan
When I was younger, I was deployed over to Okinawa, Japan. I was thrilled for the opportunity to live on an island and experience a different culture on the other side of the world.
And what a different world it was from New England and its colorful autumns and snowy winters. With its peaceful beaches and streets lined with palm trees, Okinawa thrilled me with its serene beauty.
Then, I learned about darker elements. I read about hauntings on the island and unexplainable incidents. The contrast fascinated me. I had to set a story there, in particular, a novel that I’d been working on for years, called When Darkness Whispers.
When Darkness Whispers - Night Eagle Operations
Some memories are better left forgotten...
Haunted by an unclear past, biologically enhanced Marine, Eva Montreaux, can't be distracted from her mission. With American servicemen being brutally murdered on the island of Okinawa, it's more than priority.
It's critical. But when her investigation brings her face to face with Marcos Delacruz, it triggers memories. Ones she lost. Memories that somehow include him.
Marcos Delacruz has tried to forget the woman who left him with nothing but empty promises. Even
now, three years later, Eva doesn't seem to express any guilt over breaking his heart. In truth, she seems to barely recognize him. This deployment has been challenging enough with too many restless spirits haunting the island. But when his own investigation forces him to cross paths with her once more, Marcos discovers there may be a deeper truth.
With the number of murders climbing rapidly and the rising need to track the murderer across the tropical island, Eva struggles to reclaim what she lost. But the island holds darker elements--a serial killer. One that doesn't appear to be human.
Thrust into a world she can't escape, Eva must discover a way to stop a murderer from destroying anyone else's future, but how can she succeed if she can't even remember what role Marcos played in her past?
When Darkness Whispers is full of paranormal romantic suspense you won't want to put down! Go undercover with a supernatural team into a world of vampires, gargoyles, shifters, demons, and ghosts. If you like haunting mystery, spine-tingling suspense, and Japanese mythology, you'll love When Darkness Whispers!
