A thrilling mystery
The Whispers by Heidi Perks is the first book I have read from her and it has been a great introduction to her work. I really enjoyed her style of writing and how she was able to draw me into the story experiencing it as her characters do.
Heidi Perks had me wrapped up in this story right from the blurb. The idea that someone could disappear while on a night out with four of their closest friends, definitely makes for an intriguing catalyst to a fascinating mystery.
There is nothing I love more than unreliable narrator and you get that in spades with this book. Even had I been able to trust the clues I was given, I didn’t even come close cracking the mystery of this group of women.
A gripping and solid mystery, The Whispers is an in depth look at toxic friendships, manipulation, control and obsession. A deviously wicked read, with a thrilling twist that I enjoyed immensely. It was a pleasure to read and review The Whispers, which I recommend.
Not what I expected
Could not put this book down.
