In this dark, suspenseful thriller, Alex North weaves a multi-generational tale of a father and son caught in the crosshairs of an investigation to catch a serial killer preying on a small town.
After the sudden death of his wife, Tom Kennedy believes a fresh start will help him and his young son Jake heal. A new beginning, a new house, a new town. Featherbank.
But the town has a dark past. Twenty years ago, a serial killer abducted and murdered five residents. Until Frank Carter was finally caught, he was nicknamed "The Whisper Man," for he would lure his victims out by whispering at their windows at night.
Just as Tom and Jake settle into their new home, a young boy vanishes. His disappearance bears an unnerving resemblance to Frank Carter's crimes, reigniting old rumors that he preyed with an accomplice. Now, detectives Amanda Beck and Pete Willis must find the boy before it is too late, even if that means Pete has to revisit his great foe in prison: The Whisper Man.
****4 Star review****
There are many words that could describe this book but one stands out the most....CREEPY!!
I can not remember the last time a book had me looking over my shoulders or afraid to read in the dark. The Whisper Man had that effect on me. It is a book that will most definitely give you goosebumps.
The story is told from multiple points of views with two stories that eventually intertwine. I knew it would eventually come together but didn't expect it to happen the way it did. It was quiet clever. As the story continues on, it gets creepier and creepier. You will trust no one and I mean NO ONE.
I would recommend this book to all my thriller book friends! I am excited to read more like this one from Alex.
