Victims all describe hearing a voice before they die gruesomely. Sometimes it's singing an old Taiwanese song, sometimes it's in Japanese, and sometimes it's an anguished call for help from a loved one. Can Wu Shih-sheng, a degenerate taxi driver in Taipei, hunt down the source of the voice that killed his wife before he becomes the next victim?

Whisper is a plot-driven Taiwanese horror story. As well as being a chilling read, Chang Yu\-Ko cleverly combines Taiwanese folklore, the Japanese occupation of Taiwan, and the long-term mistreatment of the country's aboriginal people into a tale of how the past can still kill.
