"POIGNANT AND TERRIFYING"
Entertainment Weekly

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.

And then Jake begins acting strangely. He hears a whispering at his window...

Crazy catchoo ,

Slow burn

Loved this book. It really got under my skin, especially at night. My only complaint was that it is slightly slow, but it is written well and kept me interested even through the slower parts.

Nice

Nice read, though it was more mystery than thriller

Horrifically Satisfying Experience

This is the most horrifying novel I think I have ever read. No chapter in any book I have ever read has scared me as much as Chapter 21. The fact that I also have some experiences in common with Tom Kennedy was especially unnerving. I highly recommend this novel.
