Description:
 Join us as Best-selling author and award-winning journalist, George Jared, takes us on another spell-binding journey with his third true crime book, Whispers in the Willows. Whispers is an anthology style, true crime book that chronicles three unsolved murders, a series of Death Row executions, and tells the harrowing stories of two Holocaust survivors.
Whispers in the Willows includes:
• A 22-year-old college student, Rebekah Gould, who vanished from a friend’s house Sept. 20, 2004, near the town of Melbourne, Arkansas.
• Amanda Tusing, a 20-year-old aspiring veterinarian, left her fiancée’ home on a rain soaked night. A few hours later she would be dead, and her case has baffled law officers for almost 20 years.
• Karen Johnson Swift, a mother of four, vanished just before Halloween, 2011, in Dyersburg Tennessee. Her body was found in a cemetery a couple of months later. Her killer remains free.
• Four men who committed unspeakable acts of violence and torture were set to die on Death Row in April, 2017. Jared was there for the planned executions and gives a detailed look into one the darkest places on Earth.
