The Whisper Man

""With an unexpected ending, this book kept me on the edge of my seat." "


If you leave a door half-open, soon you'll hear the whispers spoken... Still devastated after the loss of his wife, Tom Kennedy and his young son Jake move to the sleepy village of Featherbank, looking for a fresh start.

But Featherbank has a dark past. Fifteen years ago a twisted serial killer abducted and murdered five young boys. Until he was finally caught, the killer was known as 'The Whisper Man'.

Of course, an old crime need not trouble Tom and Jake as they try to settle in to their new home. Except that now another boy has gone missing. And then Jake begins acting strangely.

He says he hears a whispering at his window...

Purchase the book from Amazon.


North has brought in quite an eclectic mix of characters; a bereaved father and son, an ambitious detective, a stone-cold killer and a former alcoholic who continues to fight his demons. Dealing not just with the case of the missing boy but also with Tom and Jake's journey, 'The Whisper Man' is not a book you will want to read at night by an open window or door. With just a hint of menace and the suggestion that someone is the other side of the glass is enough to want to shut the windows tight. With an unexpected ending, this book kept me on the edge of my seat. 'The Whisper Man' is easy to read and well written. An excellent creepy novel from Alex North and another name to go on my 'list of authors not to be missed'.
